CHOICE Review

This book collects 12 previously published essays that explore photography through the lens of gender and race. Solomon-Godeau argues, in the essay on Harry Callahan, that "the art of photographic capture is never innocent." Highlights of the volume include analysis of artists such as Cindy Sherman and Robert Mapplethorpe, an interpretation of the Abu Ghraib torture photographs, and a discussion of the dialectic of inside/outside in photographic representation. Parsons's substantial preface contextualizes Solomon-Godeau's work, writing that it demonstrates "that there is still much to be gained from asking questions about culture, gender, and power." Solomon-Godeau's language is often complex and difficult to unpack, yet her observations are striking and her arguments compelling. Her skill at seeing what others do not and sharing her findings with readers makes these essays absorbing for those interested in cultural studies as well as art history and gender studies. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty. --Laurel Marie Bliss, San Diego State University
