Abstract (English)

Bate borrows Foucault's metaphor of the panopticon in criticizing cultural practices associated with the "vulgarisation of leisure". Jeffries looks at Atkinson's photos of tourist rites as both private and public spaces and suggests that Gill's photos of recreational activities question the use of leisure time. Includes a comment by Atkinson. Biographical notes. 14 bibl. ref.
