PHOTOGRAPHY, NARRATIVE, TIME: IMAGING OUR FORENSIC IMAGINATION. Greg Battye. Intellect Books, Bristol, 2014. Critical Photography. Published in the U.S.A. by Intellect Books, University of Chicago Press. 206 pp. with 14 ills. 23 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781783201778 In English.
Publisher's description: Providing a wide-ranging account of the narrative properties of photographs, Greg Battye focuses on the storytelling power of a single image, rather than the sequence. Drawing on ideas from painting, drawing, film, video, and multimedia, he applies contemporary research and theories drawn from cognitive science and psychology to the analysis of photographs. Using genuine forensic photographs of crime scenes and accidents, the book mines human drama and historical and sociological authenticity to argue for the centrality of the perception and representation of time in photographic narrativity.
