Abstract (English)

Defining photography as a process of signification, the authors address the production of photographic meaning through institutional, social and art historical discourses. Working from a variety of theoretical approaches, essays address photography in relation to censorship, criticism, surrealism, the media, the female gaze, fetishism and AIDS. Biographical notes on the authors. Circa 200 bibl. ref.
