Camera Graeca: Photographs, Narratives, Materialities

Modern Greece and photography are almost peers: both are cultural products of the 1830s, and both actively converse with modernity. This is the first inter-disciplinary volume to examine Greece’s entanglement with photography. The book argues that photographs and the photographic process have been instrumental in the reproduction of national imagination, in the consolidation of the nation-building process, and in the dissemination of propaganda.
