Allen, West st.
Street, N. The Revolution had transformed the country. My work was really coming to terms with the ideology of the Islamic regime and the Revolution I was making it for myself. I was more trying to raise questions as opposed to answering them. Neshat: During the Shah's regime, we had a very open, free environment. There was a kind of dilution between West and East — the way we looked and the way we lived.
When I went back everything seemed changed. There seemed to be very little color. Everyone was black or white. All the women wearing the black chadors. It was immediately shocking. Street names had changed from old Persian names to Arabic and Muslim names This whole shift of the Persian identity toward a more Islamic one created a kind of crisis.
I think to this day there's a great sense of grief that goes with that. TIME: Do you regret leaving? Neshat: Leaving has offered me incredible personal development, a sense of independence that I don't think I would have had. But there's also a great sense of isolation. And I've permanently lost a complete sense of center.
I can never call any place home. I will forever be in a state of inbetween. One constantly has to negotiate back and forth between one culture and the other and often they're not just different, they're in complete conflict Now that I have gained a sense of individualism being in America it's really hard for me to give all of that up and be in places where that doesn't exist. But it's also very satisfying to be part of a collective where individual interest doesn't drive the whole thing The work is more and more [about] my desire for reconciliation with my past and my culture.
Neshat: It's so different from what they are. When you look at a culture that is so different, you start questioning yourself The way in which Islamic ideology has been growing rapidly around the Middle East is [seen as] a threat It's not even religion. It's like the Soviet Union, communism, which was once a threat. I think that Islam is very often dismissed because that ideology doesn't fit into the kind of rationality that the western world has. TIME: Are you trying to upset the stereotypes? Neshat: I'm an artist so I'm not an activist.
I don't have an agenda. I'm creating work simply to entice a dialog and that's all. I do tend to show the stereotype head on and then break it down. There's the stereotype about the women — they're all victims and submissive — and they're not. Slowly I subvert that image by showing in the most subtle and candid way how strong these women are. TIME: Why are the women holding guns in your photographs? Neshat: It's addressing the topic of the Revolution and the fact that we cannot separate ideas of religion and spirituality from politics and violence.
It very much deals with that idea of martyrdom, which can be identified as terrorism. I'm trying to present this paradox where a typical martyr stands on the border of love of God and devotion and faith on one hand and crime and cruelty and violence on the other They're willing to commit a crime because they love God.
That is such a strange ideology and that can only be understood from the Islamic perspective if you look at their history You live your whole life to promote Islam and when you die you get rewarded. So you're congratulated for your death, which is a very bizarre mentality. Have you shown your work recently in Iran or other regions near that part of the world and is one of your intentions to investigate or subvert stereotypes?
Shirin Neshat: It's been rather problematic to show my work in Iran both in respect to the nature of my work because of its controversial themes, and lack of appropriate venues. Consequently this path naturally has pulled me toward a larger cultural investigation, which I happen to care deeply about. Therefore, to properly analyze my work, one must always consider both its personal and social context that always run in parallel. Of course in process I seem to frame and raise many questions, which naturally bring me to investigate, confront and at times deconstruct all kinds of stereotypes such as the notion of 'orientalism'.
In regard to your other point, my interest in the subject of women is partially due to the fact that as a woman I feel closer and more sympathetic toward their situation living under oppressive societies. But also, because I believe in Islamic societies such as in Iran, by studying the predicament of the women, one could learn about the overall ideological structure of the political system that rules the country.
One side never exists without the suggestion of its opposite. For example in the "Women of Allah" photographic series, we are confronted with threatening images of women embracing the gun, yet there is something terribly submissive, erotic and sensual about the female bodies and gazes.

Dijkstra draws a parallel between the two groups of photographs.
Both bullfighters and mothers are pictured after an exhausting and potentially life-threatening experience, relating to society's deepest-held ideas of masculinity and femininity. Je crois que la photographie permet parfaitement de traiter ce double point de vue. Je les travaille comme des moments documentaires. Il faudrait que chacun essaie cela : regarder un mur pendant des heures, sans bouger, sans parler. C'est un vide, un grand vide au bord du trou. A quand les magazines people sans people?

Elle quitte Jacques. The name of Robert Mapplethorpe has become synonymous with censorship of photography. Congress criticized the National Endowment of the Arts for supporting his retrospective organized by the Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Ever since, his work has been at the center of the censorship conflict known as in the U. Mapplethorpe's work has also been censored beyond U.
This photograph, Rosie, was arnong several censored from an exhibition at the Hayward Gallery in London in What is more, according to the New Statesman, the Mapplethorpe estate denied the periodical permission to publish the image in their article on the censorship of the exhibition. This article, published alongside a blank space where the photo would have been placed, states that the subject of the photo, Rosie Bowden, was pleased with the photo and that she intended to hang a copy on the wall of her restaurant in Notting Hill, " It is a very, very sweet picture, taken on a hot day spent around naked ", she told the lndependent on Sunday.
Photography and the Crisis of Looking, Munich, Prestel, , p. How to have a perfect childhood […] Childhood is an imaginary place colonised exclusively by adults. Children — aware of their different status, but not knowing what that status is — do not live there. They are always somewhere else — gone through the wardrobe or into the woods, into imaginary spaces that we, as adults, cannot enter. To compensate for the child's absence, adults substitute representations : photographs, films, stories.
Childhood becomes a screen for our own projections — both present: what and who we imagine "our" child is, what they are doing, thinking, now, and past : what and who we believe we were and cannot properly remember. We need the image, and we need the fix, the fiction of fact, as a guarantee for our stories.
Perhaps more than half of the photographic film exposed in domestic and commercial use has purported to record images of childhood. Most of those images — whether the fast-fading, uncomposed snapshot taken by mother or father, or the slick, over-lit, idealisation of advertising and highstreet professional photographer, or even, at the margins, the "aesthetic", "artistic" study of the posed infant or adolescent — grossly misrepresent the experience of being a child.
Together the parent and child look at photographs : the adult always takes the picture, the child is always the subject. The adult will always say " that's you! Perhaps we do not construct our children in our own image, we construct our children in our images of them. Bewildered, confused by the welter of adults and studio light, still getting the hang of objects in space, a baby is posed in a faux Victorian ewer, beside a pitcher of matching floral pattern. The result is a portrait photograph of a smiling infant, a happy child.
Every home should have one ; most probably do. The image is typical of the work of the professional studio photographer, commissioned by doting parents. It is a representation as representative of reality as much as the utensils in which the baby is posed are genuine antiques. The task of the portrait photographer is summed up by Frances Dumbleton, a Cambridge-based specialist in photographing children.
There is limited scope for initiative or creativity by the photographer — the specification for the image is determined by the parent. But who speaks here? Who says " I love you "?

The smile is not one of visual recognition. The baby does not return the parent's adoring gaze but responds to the sounds made by the photographer poised over the camera. The photograph becomes a visual guarantee of what the parent already knows, or hopes they know. The child's smile can only be made to mean what the adult wants it to mean by the parent positioning him or herself in the place of the camera and imagining that the child's happy response is to their presence. The image does not contain this meaning of itself, it is only produced through a narrative.
Parents must imagine that the child loves them because it smiles. But the image does not initiate this sentiment, it authenticates what already exists.
And the meaning of the image will always lie with the adults who commissioned it. As Frances Dumbleton says of her clients, 'ln the future, when they look back, they want to remember a happy childhood. And so the pictures, going on through, three smiles in the first year, and then continuing on smiling, satisfies the need later on to realise that the child has been happy. As an instrument of modernity, the camera has helped to invent the modern family, and a particular view of childhood. We pathologise the absence of the familial image, yet the happiest childhood might be one of which no photographs exist — would the child ever notice?
Though the corresponding. Before the invention of the camera childhood went largely unrecorded, except in staid commissioned portraits. Were those children who preceded the age of mechanical reproduction of the image less happy with their lives? Was their adulthood troubled by the absence of memory? The image of the happy smiling child, posed for the camera without ever knowing what it means to pose, does not exist for the child at any time ; it lives and dies with the parents.
The styles of portrait photography change slowly. I can look at equivalent images to Frances [fin p. I am represented in the forms of my parent's culture, in forms that they acquired from a succession of generations, and a multiplicity of ideas about what a child should look like. My separation from these images does not stem from an unhappy childhood. Put simply, these pictures only purport to be me, they do not express my thoughts, my feelings then — assuming that I could remember what they were. A portrait is not a biography — at least, not an accurate one.
I have no experience of these pictures being made, no memory which they can foster or recall. They mean nothing to me, except through an inversion : that they mattered to my parents. Ewald is one of those rare artists who, photographing the child, asks her subject to make a visual exploration of their own imagination.
These images are "self-portraits" which the photographer facilitates. But Wendy Ewald does not write herself out of the content of these pictures. Through her inspiration, her encouragement of the child to think about the representation of fears, dreams, fantasies, the work happens. These studies are the products of a rare, and improbable, collaboration between adult and child. Ewald and her collaborators produce work that is radically different from the expected image of the pre-adult world.
Les ruines de Détroit, fléaux ou opportunités de … – Frontières – Érudit
There are no "pretty-babies" here. And when the pose is sexualised in mimesis of the adult world, as in Denise Dixon's bikini-clad posturings, the incompletely knowing nature of the parody is clear [illustrations page 52 de ce dossier].
The image suggests that this femininity is a performance that Denise Dixon will grow into, even as she ridicules it, because it is a norm of female identity that precedes her. Perhaps we do not, as Denise Dixon does not, choose the identities and roles that we imagine. Perhaps they are the only ones that we can fantasise.
What is surprising about the work of Wendy Ewald and her children is the penumbra of violence and the grotesque which envelops it. Ewald's kids, in different cultures and countries, imagine themselves and others run over by cars, killed by knives, crushed by logs, abducted by monsters, or subjected to protracted punishment.
They fantasise impossible adult acts — unaware of the constraints that will entangle them — or believe in the miraculous. The ways in which children imagine both the world and themselves are potentially more various and more disturbing to us as adults than the adult constructions of childhood can allow. As Ewald says, 'Children want to please adults, and l'm sure they know that adults want to have this rosy picture of them.
Maybe, when they're doing it for each other, or when they're behind the camera, that changes. Is this a dark side to childhood that adults, released from those dreams, forget and never see again? Beyond subject matter, there is also a surprising stylistic continuity to these images. There is a peculiarly "Southern Gothic" temper to much of Ewald's published work that reflects not only on its geographic location — she established her early career in workshops with children of coal-mining communities in the Appalachian mountains — but also makes aesthetic links with the suppressed violence, concealed identities and brooding melancholy of photographers such as Ralph Eugene Meatyard [voir p.
It is interesting that both the much older Meatyard and Ewald had the influential figure of Minor White as a teacher at different points in their careers. Though Ewald has commented that 'It doesn't interest me to put a frame around someone's world', perhaps as an adult, no matter how strongly the temptation is resisted, it is impossible not to edit and select certain images, certain fantasies, to produce a particular view of the world.
And the narratives that we create, consciously or unconsciously, as adult or as child, are themselves permeated with the influences of others. It is a theme she shares with Sally Mann. For Mann the child — in her most noted images it is always her children — is a synecdoche for untamed nature. Mann's children grew up where she herself grew up, in [fin p. As Mann has commented in one of her books, " The sound of the axe, the tractor, Daddy's Indian call brought us back, panting and scratched from crawling through the tunnels we had made in the mounded honeysuckle.
I was an Indian, a cliffdweller, a green spirit Mann was always conscious that she and her children, increasingly complicit in the production of their images, were producing a particular " … story of what it is to grow up. The American academic Emily Apter has suggested that Mann's photographs constitute a form of " maternal fetishism " — that is, they always already substitute for the children that Mann knows she, as a mother, will lose to the inevitable process of maturity. Mann knows the dangers of the feral fantasy ; she has grown up in the wilderness. By representing the scars and marks of accident, both minor and serious, which the child survives, the image protects against the intrusion of real trauma.
Jessie's Cut, and Damaged Child, [voir p. But they can also be imagined as elements in a narrative of protection. If the child can be seen to have survived this wounding the photograph becomes a guarantor of its safety. The marks on the child's body are of great significance in Mann's work. If the child is nature, both innocent and raw, then the mark becomes the cut in the landscape, the sign of progress, of cultivation.
To be scarred, by accident, is a contingent element of childhood — we all broke something, cut ourselves. Maturing is, in part, learning about the ways in which you can be damaged by the world. Maturing is also about learning your situation in that world, in both its spatial and social ontologies. Mann repeatedly embeds her children in the community where they are growing up, and where she grew up. Her pair of images The Two Virginias 1, and 2, [voir p.
Ninetythree years lie between them, and a gulf of racial and class experience, but the images emphasise continuity and a sense of paternal obligation peculiar to the structures of rural culture. Both photographers are working in small rural communities over long periods of time — they deal with the intimate domestic lives of their neighbours and families. For Mann the child may represent nature, but the wilderness can also be seen to stand for the world outside of man's control.
The content of these photographs suggests that whilst the feral fantasy can mark and harm you, the community will always be there to nurture, sustain and restore. The question that arises must be whether these reiterations of experience, these perpetuations of relationship within and for the community are recorded for their subjects or as a guarantee of stability for the photographer.
Mann's photographs project naturality — inevitable and immutable conditions of nature, of childhood, of social structure. But they are a narrative, a " story of what it is like to grow up ", not documents of indisputable fact. Mann's images are at once spontaneous moments and carefully constructed tableaux.
The photograph implies immediacy, as does the context. Mann's work, no matter how sophisticated, no matter how technically " crafted ", remains embedded in the tradition of the family album. But the technology that Mann employs, a large Victorian plate camera [8x10 inch], requires prolonged exposure times and fixed postures to produce the image.
It is not an instrument of spontaneity, carried in the pocket.
The presence of the camera at the scene photographed implies a duration as much as the picture itself. The " natural " flow of childhood is interrupted to fix a particular performance, perhaps instigated by the adult, perhaps one in which the child is complicit. Is childhood perhaps a set of performances, like staged tableaux, made for adults, in which the body is the focus of attention and expression? And in those stumbling, hesitant, performances, did we, and do our children, learn to act out roles for the rest of our lives?
The concept of identity as unconsciously practised performance : of gender especially, but also of class, race and sexuality, is fast becoming a critical truism. We endlessly repeat lines and enact gestures from particular scripts with varying degrees of discomfort and enthusiasm until we grow into or out of those roles.
And from roles proceed narratives about ourselves and the world around us. James Kincaid comments " We suspect that events themselves are complicit with the narrative authority that forms and licenses them "6 Mann's images show us a group of children in the process of " learning ". The " canonieal narrative " which the children enact is partly the experience of a childhood that already awaits them : Sally Mann's own adventures in these woods and rivers, with, if not the same people, then the same community. The children swim and run with the knowledge that their mother did the same. Mann has been accused, unfairly, of vicariously reliving her childhood through the images of her children.
And here nature precedes from culture — it is what you can imagine yourself doing spontaneously, believing that what you are doing is fresh, original and unique. So Sally Mann's children re-enact scenes that have already been played out in some form, scenes that already represent an adult memory of childhood experience. These " spontaneous " performances not only preceded them as event and memory but preceded them in culture, as representation in other family photos, as a structural model for the bahaviour of children in a particular environment.
Perhaps part of the adverse reaction that has greeted Mann's images stems from the misrecognition of rural culture by the urban. The modes of behaviour, the allowances are different. As a child the forms of behaviour you follow may feel " natural " and autonomous, but they will be an inevitable consequence of the culture in which you live.
Sorted… " It seems probable that if we were never bewildered there would never be a story to tell about us "7 Against a blue-grey sky, blushed with what might be either dusk or dawn, a couple of teenagers kiss. But " kiss " is too gentle, too adult, a word. They " snog " : for there is an aggression, a myopie, inconsequential passion to their actions, which Jouko Lehtola's photograph captures perfectly [voir illustrations p. The girl — her short and spiky electric blue hair, crudely dyed, picked up by chipped enamel on broken nails, by the plastic strap of a cheap watch — forces her face against the boy's, presses her fingers into his hair.
The weight, the impetus of the photograph come from her. But are the signs of gender distinction so obvious in this image? Are this pair girl and boy? Are they a pair? The girl is marked by force and desire, she takes from the passive " boy ", his blonde hair and yellow T-shirt the antithesis of her midnight blue. At first glance these two teens are binary opposites : he plays bright day against her night, but their condition is as liminal and indeterminate as the sky behind them.
Neither is marked by the material differences of sexuality. The boy's skin is as smooth as the girl's : made-up with the social distinctions of gender identity that she uses, he too could pass as female. Far from representing a pair of different, and permanently differentiated, identities, Lehtola's image illustrates a collision of inchoate sexualities.
It is an age when ideas of sexual identity and self are evanescent and fragmentary. You try out make-up in public for the first time, experiment with the. Perhaps you ape the symbols of adult romance. The gift of a single rose signifies an eternal affection, a love pledged forever that will be burned out in a week or month as the partners slip unconsciously into new selves and each becomes unrecognisable to the other.
As teenagers we imagine that these transformations, this mis behaviour goes unnoticed. Perhaps it does. When the experiments go tragically wrong, as they sometimes inevitably do, the first reaction of distraught parents is to proclaim " The virtue of Jouko Lehtola's work is that it represents the yawning stretch between infancy and adulthood without glamorising or romanticising.
These are the pictures parents never take because they come from an area where adults never go. And the body is the site of anxiety both for the teenager, in a present tense, and adults, if they see representations or consequences. Neither party is quite sure what is happening, or what the changes mean. Lehtola photographs at summer festivals in the Finnish countryside. The impulse, for the teenagers, is much the same as that behind the British rave scene — to get as far away from adults as possible, and off your face for as long as possible — though the fuel in these photographs is alcohol rather than Ecstasy, Speed or Ketamine.
And these festivals, almost as a condensation of adolescent experience, begin to mark and scar the body. Lehtola's subjects are damaged : their necks are covered in love-bites, or their faces are bruised and cut, from fighting or, more often, from falling over drunk. The bewildered infant has become the dazed and confused teenager, on the edge of entering the world and yet hardly more prepared for it.
The teenaged body generates sexual meanings. The crisis of looking at such bodies arises from the plurality of interpretations and assumptions. The meanings which the body produces — both in its actuality and its representation — are different things to different people of different ages. For Lehtola's subjects, exploring desire and pleasure far from parental authority, such meanings matter intensely. Sexuality is an integral part of identity — and the decisions taken, roles played out and experiments performed in these years will do much to determine what that identity is.
There are a limited number of ideal roles on offer, and popular culture as consumed by teenagers makes explicit claims about what they are and the demeaning and denigrated nature of possible alternatives. Collier Schorr's subjects seem to dwell in an ideal suburban teen world. Everything is apparently " normal ", but Schorr's work with her young German friends and relations uses the apparent nature of normality to subvert the meaning of an ordinary life. There is always more to these images than meets the eye. Schorr asks her audience to read the banality of the photograph and then ask what it is excluding, and why.
Her project, as the critic Jan Avgikos has noted, is " … based on a strategy of defamiliarization predicated on instrumentalizing means of " seeing differently " which, here, is tantamount to " seeing difference ". Like Lehtola's festival-goers, Schorr's kids seem to dwell in an adult-free world. But unlike Lehtola's documentary work, Schorr's images are carefully posed constructs. And to pose, as Craig Owens pointed out in a lucid examination of the relationship between looked at and onlooker, implies a complicity between photographer and subject. What is being explored here is [fin p.
Like the work of male photographers with female teenagers — such as David Hamilton — Schorr's images eroticise the bodies of her subjects [voir illustrations p. Hamilton positions his adolescent girls as passive objects of masculine desire in a project that exploits sexuality through a spurious aestheticism. As a lesbian, Schorr is concerned with socially marginalised female to female desire.
There is an awkward paradox for a woman artist here, aware of the problems implicit in rendering the female, and especially the female adolescent, as erotic object. Why, and how, such poses are produced by adults is the subject of Amy Adler's series What Happened to Amy? The juvenile Adler poses awkwardly in stereotyped postures, obviously directed by the photographer, with playground props, such as a swing. The images are permeated by a sense of discomfort, an unwillingness to be positioned in ways with which she nonetheless complies. The repeated transference of the image between photograph and drawing suggests a deliberate play between the conditions of the different media as objects of knowledge, a movement between the apparent fact of the photograph and the fictive status of the drawing.
Such a play might correspond to an uncertainty of memory. A level of narrative oscillates between what the " original " photographs contain as fact, and what they don't say, because outside the frame ; between fact as recorded in photographs and the artist's drawn interpretation of it; between that narrative of recollection and its re-fixing as evidence. The dilemma of the sexual pose partially explains Collier Schorr's interest in using teenaged boys as subjects. Schorr comments that " And I realised that I probably use boys because they don't, and that's more exciting for me.
Posing, as Craig Owens suggests, is a mimetic performance. Somewhere there is an other that is being imitated, well or badly. That " other " is, however embodied, an embodiment of existing cultural practices. Here Schorr, as a body in which the girls' identifications may reside, provides an alternative model for their performance of sexuality. An atmosphere of reverie and ennui pervades Brown Bathrobe, , its subject, without the understanding of " difference " pointed to by Avgikos, otherwise just another bored teen.
Elsewhere, the photographer and subjects work together knowingly to produce models of androgyny that challenge conventional feminine roles and appearances.

Often Schorr uses military uniforms to incorporate " masculine " appearance in female subjects. This is not a portrait of a corporeal self, the subject is a teenaged boy wearing make-up. But the picture is a study of a psychological self, reflected in the ambivalently gendered body that Schorr might want to be.
