Unwrapping Photography - Luca M. Damiani
 
Book Information
 

Full Description:


What surrounds the creation of an NGO photographic image? How is this constructed? What underpins it and what is its social dynamic and texture? Unwrapping Photography looks at the development – from concept to delivery – of human rights photography. The work is based on the photo-documentary Une Saveur Inegalee (2013), developed in 2011-2012 in Burkina Faso in collaboration with Amnesty International.
This study unpacks the photograph and shows its flow and over-layering process of stages and elements, through time and place – the elements to be considered in its reading. These elements are often hidden in the final photographic image, but they are key aspects in the analysis, meaning and complete reading of the photograph.

Unwrapping Photography analyses how we can read and look at a human rights photograph not only as an output, but as a multi-layered performance of social and visual construction. It shapes a critical and analytical perspective of the photographic practice in the field from a different camera view.
