Try Not to Smile and Say Cheese

These three interconnected essays, "Public Gaze," "Typification and Surveillance," and "Recognition," deal with the relationship between the image and the marginalized other. All three essays also evalute the roll that the image has had in constituting and perpetuating the notion of the Other. "Public Gaze" focuses on themes of spectatorship, space, and popularized images. "Typification and Surveillance" deals with the role images have in typifying, surveying, and, in turn, documenting marginalized individuals. "Recognition" deals with misrepresentation, lack of representation, and proper recognition of marginalized individuals in images.
