Aprašymas

A powerhouse in photographic theory—updated and with a new essay

Every day, photographic images are relied upon as documents, evidence, and records in courtrooms, hospitals, and police work. But how did such usages come to be established, and when? What agencies and institutions had the power to give them this status? And what are the consequences of photographic representation? Drawing on semiotics, cultural theory, and the work of Foucault and Althusser, John Tagg rejects the idea of photography as a record of reality and traces a history that has profound implications not only for the theory of photography but also for understanding the role of new means of representation in modern social regulation. Now with a new essay situating this volume in the changed horizon of cultural politics, The Burden of Representation argues for a rigorous analysis of the meaning, status, and effects of photographs, rooted in a historical grasp of the growth of the modern state.
