Suspended Conversations
by Martha Langford
Publisher's Description
"Photo albums are stories that come to life in the retelling - but when no one is left to tell the tale, the intrigue of the album becomes a frustrating puzzle, a suspended conversation. Martha Langford argues that oral consciousness provides the missing key. By correlating photography and orality she shows how albums were designed to work as performances and how we can unlock their mysteries."-the publisher.
