Product Description


"Photography's Other Histories is an extremely interesting and important volume. It challenges both the canonical view of photographic value and importance and, in its cross-cultural concerns, the centrality of Euro-American theoretical constructs of photography. Throughout, the collection successfully argues for a reorientation in the critical debate." Elizabeth Edwards, Curator of Photographs and Lecturer in Visual Anthropology, Pitt Rivers Museum, University of Oxford "Photography's Other Histories is a quite remarkable collection of essays on widely ranging photographic practices around the world. In its attention to local cultural inflections to a global technology, to the recuperation of colonial images by their latterday Fourth World subjects, and to the provocative anti-realist aesthetics characterizing much post-colonial photography, this volume marks a watershed in both art history, anthropology, and cultural studies."-Lucien Taylor, The Film Study Center, Harvard University "PHotography's Other Histories should be considered an important contribution to the anthropological literature, since relatively few anthropological studies of photography from this perspective have been published... the authors have made an important theoretical contribution toward understanding how a global technology has been adapted to the production of locally varying cultural manifestations. One may wish to consider this text for an upper-level course in visual anthropology."--JRNL OF THE RAI, Sept 04
