Synopsis: The victor's account of history may be the one that is recorded, but photojournalism still has the power to undermine the official version. Such is the corrective testimony of this startling collection of banned, suppressed or conveniently forgotten news images depicting moments from the last century where the propaganda needs of politicians, despots and stars clashed with sometimes awkward, sometimes horrifying truths. Incorporating images and text from the Index On Censorship and the Hulton Getty Picture Collection, the images represent a reality check on alleged events from the last hundred years, documenting a power struggle with rival cultural forces of media and information. Reclaimed from the trash cans of the Second World War, Hitler's preening speech rehearsals come back to argue with his self-made myth. From the cruelty of Stalin's Russia to fundamentalist chaos in Iran, via disgruntled starlets, ecological destruction and US nuclear tests, Underexposed gathers some of the most ideologically dangerous photographs ever taken and releases them to haunt the increasingly manipulated, retouched present. With an incisive forward by Colin Jacobson, the book is a seminal work for all those curious about what lies beneath the last century's layers of spin.

Book Description Vision On Publishing, London, UK, 2002. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. Various (illustrator). 1st Edition. Book appears new and unread, contents pages pristine, hard board cover (no dust jacket) has some age-wear with creasing at edges, curled corners, but generally very good. At the beginning of the digital revolution, it became clear how photographs could be manipulated to tell a completely different story from what the participants would recognise. 'Underexposed' 'investigates some of the most glaring examples of photographs which have been banned, doctored, manipulated or suppressed in order to dupe the viewer.(it) reminds us that we have to be alert to false messages sent out by those who want us to get the wrong end of the stick.' (from the cover). Black-and-white and full-colour plates throughout - images to disturb and shock. Based on an original idea by Index on Censorship. Bookseller Inventory # 002875
