Decolonising the Camera: Photography in Racial Time
Join us at the Photographers’ Gallery Bookshop to celebrate the launch of Mark Sealy’s new book Decolonising the Camera: Photography in Racial Time.
This book examines how western photographic practice has been used as a tool for creating Eurocentric and violent visual regimes, and demands that we recognise and disrupt the ingrained racist ideologies that have tainted photography since its inception in 1839.
‘A must-read for anyone interested in the intersection of race, identity, and photography.’
- Steven Evans, Executive Director, FotoFest International
‘Sealy teaches us how to understand photography within a broader system of social, and more specifically, racial control.’
- Gary Younge
The Photographers’ Gallery Bookshop, The Photographers’ Gallery, 16-18 Ramillies Street, London W1F 7LW.
