Pressestimmen

"Blake Stimson never masks his commitment to a political understanding of photographic representation, but in focusing on its reception, he brings a phenomenological sensitivity as well as psychoanalytic theory to bear on the articulation of its aesthetic power."--Keith Moxey, Ann Whitney Olin Professor of Art History, Columbia UniversityPlease note: Arrived too late to appear on book jacket. " Pivot of the World provides a powerful, magisterial reinterpretation of photography"s place in the postwar 1950s. With elegance and economy, and marshaling a wide and sophisticated range of theories, Blake Stimson recovers a fleeting, fragile, and, until now, forgotten moment when photographs had the capacity to imagine for their viewers a different way of belonging in a world on the verge of nuclear holocaust. His is an ambitious, eye-opening, and relevant book." Anthony W. Lee , Mount Holyoke College, author of Painting on the Left and Diane Arbus: Family Albums "*Pivot of the World* provides a powerful, magisterial reinterpretation of photography's place in the postwar 1950s.
