24 x 17 cm. 485 pp. Clothbound. Illustrated in b/w and colour. – ‘To Make Their Own Way in the World’ is a profound consideration of some of the most challenging images in the history of photography: fifteen daguerreotypes of Alfred, Delia, Drana, Fassena, Jack, Jem, and Renty?men and women of African descent who were enslaved in South Carolina. – Made by photographer Joseph T. Zealy for Harvard professor Louis Agassiz in 1850, the daguerreotypes were rediscovered at the Peabody Museum in 1976. Since that time, the images have drawn worldwide interest, provoking wide-ranging interpretation and raising critical questions about the history and conditions of slavery, racism, representation, and identity. – With over two hundred illustrations, including a portfolio of stunning new photographs by contemporary artist Carrie Mae Weems […]. – As new/new copy
