Description

The Lives of Images, edited by Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa, is a series of readers designed for those interested in the ways images function within a wider set of cultural practices.

Volume I of the series, Repetition, Reproduction, Circulation, addresses the multiple life cycles of the image-its modes of dispersion, reception, consumption, and aggregation-and the significance of technological reproduction for contemporary forms of social, cultural, and political life. Volume I of the series, Repetition, Reproduction, Circulation, addresses the multiple life cycles of the image-its modes of dispersion, reception, consumption, and aggregation-and the significance of technological reproduction for contemporary forms of social, cultural, and political life.

The image is considered both a tool for liberation and a means of repression within the evolving structures of modern life.

The essays consider the implications of the nature and effect of the reproducible image on the categories, shapes, and aims of contemporary art and society.

Further grounded by two interviews with practitioners in the field, Repetition, Reproduction, Circulation promises to be an accessible, rigorous, and timely resource for all students, educators, and practitioners of photography.
