'Probably the most intelligent woman in America' Jonathan Miller
A startling reappraisal of the intersection of information, news, art, and politics in the contemporary depiction of war and disaster.
In her first full-scale investigation of the role of imagery in our culture since her classic book ON PHOTOGRAPHY defined the terms of the debate 25 years ago, Sontag cuts through circular arguments about how pictures can inspire dissent or foster violence. She takes a fresh look at the representation of atrocity -- from Goya's THE DISASTERS OF WAR to contemporary horrific images of Rwanda, Sarajevo and New York on September 11th 2001 -- and challenges our thinking about the uses and meanings of images in our world.
