Imaging the Arctic by J. C. H. King
Book DescriptionA general account of the photography of the indigenous peoples of the North American Arctic, this text brings together native and non-native photographers, archivists and anthropologists. It explores both the aesthetics and the content of Arctic photographs. Issues about the power and meaning of photographs are addressed from a number of different perspectives relating to the history and technology of the medium, gender, varied genres, the link between photography, film and the arts, and from contrasting personal and official purposes of native and non-native photographers.

UK Kirkus Review » This is a must for those fascinated by the Arctic and its peoples. Though drily academic at times, it tells the exciting story (including images of Sir John Franklin before setting sail on his fatal voyage and Labrador women dressed in their Sunday best) of how different explorers, and now local Inuits, capture and interpret the Arctic through photography. The story behind Roald Amundsen's photographs of the King William Island Netsilik people during his conquest of the Northwest Passage in 1903-05 is well told. We also learn of how Vilhjamur Stafansson changed our perception of 'Eskimos' from 'noble savages' to a highly sophisticated, adaptable people living in harsh conditions. The photographs are clearly produced and labelled. An excellent and absorbing book. (Kirkus UK)
