Museums and Photography combines a strong theoretical approach with international case studies to investigate the display of death in various types of museums―history, anthropology, art, ethnographic, and science museums – and to understand the changing role of photography in museums.  Contributors explore the politics and poetics of displaying death, and more specifically, the role of photography in representing and interpreting this difficult topic. Working with nearly 20 researchers from different cultural backgrounds and disciplines, the editors critically engage the recent debate on the changing role of museums, exhibition meaning-making, and the nature of photography. They offer new ways for understanding representational practices in relation to contemporary visual culture. This book will appeal to researchers and museum professionals, inspiring new thinking about death and the role of photography in making sense of it.

Review:

"In essence, the images of death in a museum context question the communicative capacity and constraints of photography and the role of museums in elucidating the human condition. This book will likely stimulate some new thinking about death and its multi-layered meanings that define who we are."Vivian Ting Wing Yan, The Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong
