Photography: Race, Rights and Representation
Sorry, currently out of stock
Mark Sealy's new book offers essential insight into the work photographs do in culture, drawing on his experience as director of Autograph from 1991-2021.
With the reverberations of Decolonising the Camera still being felt across cultural
institutions, universities and photo festivals today, this new text from Mark Sealy
deepens and widens his argument for seeing photography 'in racial time'.
Weaving together analyses of work by black photographers in the UK and
internationally, interviews with key figures and personal reflections on the changing
landscape of photography, this book offers an exploration of the past, present and
future of decolonial visual practice. Mark Sealy sets out a new path for photography –
jazz-like, sensorial and experimental – in order to free it from the classifying colonial
lens, offering the reader the opportunity to move both conceptually and spiritually
into new visual realms when reading an image.
