Summary

Exploring the idea that photographs are objects as well as images, and this materiality is integral to their meaning and use, this text focuses on photographs where physical properties, the nature of their use and the cultural formations in which they function make their "objectness" central to how we should understand them.

Photographs Objects Histories Summary

Photographs Objects Histories: On the Materiality of Images by Elizabeth Edwards (Pitt Rivers Musesum, University of Oxford, UK)

This innovative volume explores the idea that while photographs are images, they are also objects, and this materiality is integral to their meaning and use. The case studies presented focus on photographs active in different institutional, political, religious and domestic spheres, where physical properties, the nature of their use and the cultural formations in which they function make their 'objectness' central to how we should understand them.
The book's contributions are drawn from disciplines including the history of photography, visual anthropology and art history, with case studies from a range of countries such as the Netherlands, North America, Australia, Japan, Romania and Tibet. Each shows the methodological strategies they have developed in order to fully exploit the idea of the materiality of photographic images.
