Queer Methodology for Photography

Research output: Book/ReportBook - authoredpeer-review


Queer Methodology for Photography presents new ways of approaching photographic discourse from a queer perspective, offering discussions on what a queering methodology for photography may entail by drawing links between strategies in photographic practice and key theoretical concepts from photography theory, queer theory, critical theory, and philosophy. With different examples of conceptual perspectives, including representation, formalism, and mediumlessness, it seeks to diversify queer methodology to photography.

While primarily addressing photography, the book is entwined with broader philosophical questions concerning identity, difference and the creations of systems of thought that limit existence to established and often dichotomised categorisation. It proposes a new concept of the photographic image that addresses its materiality, in the form of the poetic and the sensuous, in relationship to a generative principle that is named as a queer quality: the photograph’s ability to claim agential movement outside of pre-established measures.

The book will be of interest to scholars working in photography, art history, queer studies, new materialism and posthumanism.
