From the Publisher:
In this writerly text, Tina Campt explores the affective resonances of two archives of Black European photographs for those pictured, their families, and the community. What did the photographs allow the sitters to express? Image Matters looks at photograph collections of four Black German families taken between 1900 and the end of World War II and a set of portraits of Afro-Caribbean migrants to Britain taken at a photographic studio in Birmingham between 1948 and 1960. Campt sees the photographs as paths into the sensory and emotional worlds of those portrayed, and as a key to understanding the lives of Black diasporic communities.
