Editorial Reviews

Review

"The authors of Beautiful Suffering: Photography and the Traffic in Pain place in historical and critical context the production and reception of images of suffering, adding precision and clarity to a divisive debate of visual culture. . . . [The book] offers a larger audience a reasoned approach to an emotionally charged subject. Five essays, along with reproductions of all works exhibited, provide a significant contribution to an excruciating subject."—Kathleen MacQueen, Art Book
(Kathleen MacQueen The Art Book )

Format: Paperback
Although some of the images presented are not photographs in the purest sense, they and the accompanying text should,I feel, give any photographer who has done or attempted this type "photography" pause. Certainly a person can create finely crafted prints of images of ANY subject and I don't think there should be any laws against it. That being said,I,as a photograher,think we should carefully examine our motives when we start to present this type of subject matter.
To get back to the book--it's well thought-out, well printed and I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
