El Futuro De Chile En Las Fotografias Del Salitre

Translated title of the contribution: The Future Of Chile In The Nitrate Photographs

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter


What can we say of the archives that preserve images taken during slavery and in concentration camps? Or of photographs depicting an ancestral heritage that has been destroyed or usurped? What of those whose repositories contain photographs of colonial violence, of people who have been executed? And what about photographs depicting contemporary global challenges? What can we say, for example, of albums documenting the extraction of natural resources, or the extinction of multiple species?
