Framing Identity & Reading Photographs

This lecture considers how photography acts as a social practice to establish identity. Focusing on images made by early Canadian women photographers, Susan Close’s presentation includes an examination of a selection of photographs made by Geraldine Moodie and Mattie Gunterman.

Informed by the methodology of cultural analysis, Close demonstrates how reading photographs can act as a significant research tool. Further, Close’s analysis will highlight areas of intersection between issues of identity, gender, post-colonialism and photographic practice.
