Photographic Memories by Rob Kroes
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Photographic Memories explores the ways photography has helped Americans and Europeans form and share a store of remembered images, thus giving them a sense of their shared past. This gracefully written narrative weaves together impressions, memories, and analysis, negotiating history in a thoroughly original way, and moving deftly from photographic memories of the American Civil War and the Cold War to the iconic images of September 11.
