Photographers have been bringing images of the Arctic to a fascinated public since the nineteenth century. Imaging the Arctic is the first general account of the photography of the indigenous peoples of the North American Arctic. Bringing together Native and non-Native photographers, archivists, and anthropologists, this volume explores both the aesthetics and the content of Arctic photographs. Issues about the power and meaning of photographs are addressed from a number of different perspectives: the history and technology of the medium, gender, various genres, the links between photography, film, and the arts, and the contrasting approaches of Native and non-Native and personal and official photographers.
