VI AISU CONGRESS

Visible and invisible: perceiving the city between descriptions and omissions

Session S2:
The city in photographic albums / La ville dans les albums photographiques

DESCRIPTION OF THE SESSION:

This session invites papers about photograph albums as representational tools that portray the city variously. Tourist albums construct canonical sites in a city's self-representation; albums of parades and festivals record events historiographically; private albums imagine city life outside the public sphere. Questions to be addressed include such issues as identifying the commissioners, the photographers, and their audiences; specifying the narrative created about the city; describing the spatial and temporal sequencing of the images; analyzing the relationship between text and image.

La session invite des textes sur les albums photographiques qui fonctionnent comme outils de représentation. Albums touristiques construisent des sites canoniques dans l'auto-représentation de la ville; albums de parades et festivals enregistrent les évènements historiographiquement; albums privés imaginent la vie publique en dehors le domaine publique. Les sujets qui seront adressés recouvrent: identifier les commanditaires, les photographes et leur clients; spécifier les narratifs construits sur la ville; décrire la séquençage spatiale et temporelle des images ; analyser la relation entre texte et image.
