Photography and History in Colonial Southern Africa: Shades of Empire

Photography and History in Colonial Southern Africa: Shades of Empire

Lorena Rizzo  (Autor)
This book studies the relationship between photography and history in colonial Southern Africa, using a series of encounters with Southern African photographic archives to reflect on photography as a distinct historical form.





Through use of private and public archives, images produced by African itinerant photographers, white settlers, and colonial state institutions, this book explores the relationship between photography and history in colonial Southern Africa. Late 19th century Cape Colonial prison albums police photographs from German Southwest Africa, African studio portraits, identity documents, travel permits and passports from the 1920s and `30s, visual studies of whiteness and blackness authored by settler photographers, South African dompas photographs from the 1950s and `60s, and aerial photography from the Eastern Cape in the mid-20th century are examined to highlight the ways in which photographic images cut across conventional institutional boundaries and complicate rigid distinctions between the private and the public, the political and the aesthetic, the colonial and the vernacular, or the subject and the object. Photography and History in Colonial Southern Africa argues that rather than understanding photographs as a means of preserving and recreating the past in the present, we can value them for how they evoke at once the need for and the limits of historical reconstruction.



This book will be of interest to students and scholars of colonial history, photographic history, visual media and African studies.
