Abstract (English)

Marking the influence of feminism, psychoanalysis, and poststructuralism on contemporary photographic discourses, these essays discuss documentary and conceptual photography. The authors analyze the subjectivity of practices in the Prairies, Québec, Vancouver, and Latin America. Various photographic strategies and specific works are discussed in relation to representation, subjectivity, and the gaze. Biographical notes on the authors. Circa 275 bibl. ref.
