The Lens and the Law: The Rights of Photographic Representation

This project expands on previous work on the culture and currency of camera images in the United States by examining instances when photographs have played central roles in legal disputes. It explores the question of who owns the photographic image by analyzing court cases and policy from the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries that define our relationship to the photographic image and grapple with questions about originality, ownership, authorship, obscenity, citizenship, and the status of the photograph as a work of art.
