Decolonising the Camera by Mark Sealy
Taking and viewing pictures has never been an ‘innocent’ endeavor
When the camera is complicit with racist ideologies
I was lucky to be able to attend a talk by Mark Sealy at the Side Gallery in Newcastle UK in 2019 and purchased his book published by Lawrence & Wishart. The cover image is by Rotimi Fani-Kayode Snap Shot 1987.
Just reading the author’s introduction makes you think! I’m not going to write about it better than him. In my view, it is essential reading whether you’re a photographer or not. The book contains some graphic photos.
Come and browse/read it in the ‘Horner Book Corner’ of CameraWork45.
