Summary
Taking as its starting point the significant role of the photograph in modern mourning practices, particularly those surrounding public figures, this work theorizes the connections between the body and the image by looking at the corpse as a special instance of a body that is simultaneously thing and representation. Arguing that the evolving cultural understanding of photographic realism structures our relationship to the corpse, it outlines a new politics of representation in which some bodies are more visible (and vulnerable) in death than others
