Description - Imaging the Arctic by J. C. H. King
A 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.
