Book Description:

Analysing over one hundred representations of lynching, Dora Apel shows how the visual documentation of such crimes can be a central vehicle for the construction and reinforcement of racial hierarchies. Lynching was often orchestrated explicitly for the camera, and photographs were used to construct ideologies of whiteness and blackness.
