Photographies East  The camera in East and SE Asia

Photographies East The camera in East and SE Asia




Azië, impact fotografie

MORRIS,R.C.[ed.], Photographies East  The Camera and Its histories in East and Southeast Asia, Durham 2009.
Softcover 18 x 25,5 cm. 314 pag. met 60 afb. 
"In this collection, scholars of Asia, most of whom are anthropologists, describe frequent attribution of spectral powers to the camera, first brought to Asia by colonialists, as they examine the transformations precipitated or accelerated by the spread of photography across East and Southeast Asia. In essays resonating across theoretical, historical, and geopolitical lines, they engage with photography in China, Japan, Taiwan, and Thailand, and on the islands of Aru, Aceh, and Java in what is now Indonesia. 
The contributors analyze how in specific cultural and historical contexts, the camera has affected experiences of time and subjectivity, practices of ritual and tradition, and understandings of death. They highlight the links between photography and power, looking at how the camera has figured in the operations of colonialism, the development of nationalism, the transformation of monarchy, and the militarization of violence. Moving beyond a consideration of historical function or effect, the contributors also explore the forms of illumination and revelation for which the camera has offered itself as instrument and symbol. And they trace the emergent forms of alienation and spectralization, as well as the new kinds of fetishism, that photography has brought in its wake. Taken together, the essays chart a bravely interdisciplinary path to visual studies, one that places the particular knowledge of a historicized anthropology in a comparative frame and in conversation with aesthetics and art history."

The Mekong Currency. Lives and times of a river

The Mekong Currency. Lives and times of a river




Zuidoost Azië

SLUITER,L., , Utrecht 1993. Soft cover 29 x 21 cm. 168 pages. Fully illustrated.
"The Mekong River journeys through China, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam before spilling into the South China Sea.
This book tells the story of the rivers wealth, its currency of silt, floods, fisheries, replenished and distributed to millions of people every year. It is the story of how the rivers currency works for people, and how people work with this currency. But it is also the story of development projects - of dams, megawatts and money. Prestigious dam projects are planned which will alter the character of the river, affect the supply of water downstream, and force hundreds of thousands of people to resettle. The economic benefits of the projects are dubious.
Judging from the past, this development proposed for the Lower Mekong Basin will be at the expense of the communities portrayed and documented in this book. The river and its people are portrayed in 300 stunning black and white photographs and in poignant texts."
