Photography's materialities

by Geoff Bender | 12 May 2021
PAPERBACK
Extensive variety of material approaches to the study of photography and photographic practices There is little dispute that photography is a material practice, and that the photograph itself is ineluctably material. And yet "matter," "material," and "materiality" have proven to be remarkably elusive terms of inquiry, frequently producing studies that are disparate in scope, sharing seemingly little common ground. Although the wide methodological range of materialist study can be dizzying, it is this book's contention that that multiplicity is also the field's greatest asset, keeping materialist inquiry enduringly vibrant-provided that varying methods are in close enough proximity to converse. Photography's Materialities orchestrates one such conversation. Juxtaposing the insights of theorists like Lacan, Benjamin, and Latour beside close studies of crime, spirit, and composite photography, among others, this collection aims for a productive synergy, one capacious enough to span transatlantic spaces over the long nineteenth century. Contributors: Kris Belden-Adams (University of Mississippi), Maura Coughlin (Bryant University), David LaRocca (independent scholar), Jacob W. Lewis (University of Rochester), Mary Marchand (Goucher College), Zachary Tavlin (Art Institute of Chicago), Christa Holm Vogelius (University of Copenhagen) This publication is GPRC-labeled (Guaranteed Peer-Reviewed Content).
