Bringing a wealth of information to bear on photographic meaning, Solomon-Godeau explores ggodeau topics in historical context. In doing so, she demonstrates that the way many photographs are understood today has little to do with the circumstance of their creation, or the manner in which they were originally distributed and viewed. In Photography after Photographyshe continues the crucial work of examining the situations and stakes of representation.

Essays written over the last two decades take up case studies as diverse as Cindy Sherman and Abu Ghraib; Solomon-Godeau reminds us that no image can truly solonon seen without a consideration of the power structures that shape it.

As the boundaries that separate photography from other forms of artistic production are increasingly fluid, Solomon-Godeau, a pioneering feminist and politically engaged critic, argues that the relationships between photography, culture, gender, and power demand renewed attention.

In her analyses of the photographic production of Cindy Sherman, Robert Mapplethorpe, Susan Meiselas, Francesca Woodman, and others, Solomon-Godeau refigures the disciplinary object of photography by considering these practices through an examination of the determinations of genre and gender as these shape the relations between photographers, their images, and their viewers.

Among her subjects are the Abu Ghraib prison photographs and the Cold War-era exhibition The Family of Maninsofar as these illustrate photography’s embeddedness in social relations, viewing relations, and ideological formations.
