Power of Photographs

Butler, J. Photography, War, Outrage. PMLA 120, 3, 822-827. About Sontag.

Sontag, S. Regarding The Torture Of Others. New York Times Magazine, 2004.  The most shocking image in the article is this one, where others appear oblivious to what’s going on.

Barthes, R., 2003 [1984]. Extracts from Camera Lucida. in: Wells, L., (Ed.), The Photography Reader. Routledge, London, 19-30. Someone conveniently  (and no doubt in violation of copyright) has put this online. This is a classic.
