Visible Evidence

Public confidence in the “real” is everywhere in decline, and cultural and historical representation is ubiquitously in question in film, documentary, video production, photography, and media. The Visible Evidence series offers a forum for the in-depth consideration of the representation of the real with books that challenge prevailing notions of the “documentary tradition” and nonfiction culture. Through anthologies on major topics (such as feminism and documentary, queer documentary, and mockumentaries) that feature contributions by prominent film scholars and filmmakers, to focused studies of home movies, Holocaust imagery, and individual international filmmakers or national media practices, Visible Evidence presents original ethnographic research and intellectually rigorous commentary on visual representation throughout a broad range of cinematic and artistic genres.
