About this book

This study thinks with photography about peace. It asks how photography can represent peace, and how such representation can contribute to peace. The book offers an original critique of the almost exclusive focus on violence in recent work on visual culture and presents a completely new research agenda within the overall framework of visual peace research. Critically engaging with both photojournalism and art photography in light of peace theories, it looks for visual representations or anticipations of peace – peace or peace as a potentiality – in the work of selected photographers including Robert Capa and Richard Mosse, thus reinterpreting photography from the Spanish Civil War to current anti-migration politics in Europe. The book argues that peace photography is episodic, culturally specific, process-oriented and considerate of both the past and the future.

Reviews

“Peace Photography is a stimulating chronicle of existing research and the author’s own analysis of the subject of photography during conflict. Peace photography, like peace journalism, advances a novel rethinking of conventional approaches to the representation of peace and security.” (Toby Nelson, Global Change, Peace & Security, March 20,  2019)
