Photography in Latin America : Images and Identities Across Time and Space Paperback / softback
Part of the Postcolonial Studies series
Historical photographs taken in Latin America have become key sites for memory politics, ethnographic imagination, and the negotiation of identity.
This volume opens up a set of questions relating to the contemporaneous agency of images as well as their current appropriation via new technologies.
Case studies of pictures taken in Mexico, Colombia, Peru, and Brazil analyze these processes by tracing how the images have been resignified over time and space.
The contributions examine photographs that have been recently rediscovered by such diverse actors as European museums, human rights organizations, anthropologists, shamans, local historians, and communities of internet users.
