Photography and its Publics (new book)

Photography and Its Publics brings together leading experts and emerging thinkers to consider the special role of photography in shaping how the public is addressed, seen and represented. . . . As they address key themes including the referential and imaginative qualities of photography, the transnational circulation of photographs, online publics, social change, violence, conflict and the ethics of spectatorship, the authors provide new insight into photography’s vital role in defining public life.

This fine collection ranges from Weimar Germany to the war in Syria, from national controversies to transnational networks, and from social movements to social media.

The volume is dedicated to Andrea Noble, who would have been one of the editors but for her untimely death.  An afterword celebrates her sensitive and courageous scholarship.

The prices at Amazon are jacked up when compared with those at Bloomsbury.

(Full disclosure: one of the chapters is by Hariman and Lucaites.)
