Historical & Critical Studies in Photography lecturer Daniel C. Blight discussed The Image of Whiteness at the Photography Studies College in Melbourne last month.
With the recent revivification of fascism in Europe, America and Australia in mind, Daniel gave a brief history of white-skinned people and discussed the much later invention of the “white race”, white denials of complicity, relative white silence, and the white gaze both as a form of image and as a deeply violent way of seeing the world. .
As well as lecturing at the University of Brighton Daniel is also a visiting tutor in Critical & Historical Studies at the Royal College of Art and is an editor at The Photographers’ Gallery, London.
