    Atlas of an Empire: Photographic Narrations and the Visual Struggle for Mozambique.Rui Assubuji - 2020 - Kronos 46 (1).
    ABSTRACT This article engages with the historiography of the Portuguese empire with reference to Mozambique. It explores the impact of visual archives on existing debates and asks what difference photographs make to our interpretation and understanding of this colonial past. Deprived of their 'historical rights' by the requirements of the Berlin treaties that insisted on 'effective occupation', the Portuguese started to employ a complex of knowledge-producing activities in which photography was crucially involved. This article examines different photographic moments before and (...)

    The Brown Photo Album: An Archive of Feminist Futurity.Jordache A. Ellapen - 2020 - Kronos 46 (1).
    ABSTRACT This photo-essay considers the other lives of family photographs by offering an analysis of my mother's collection of professional studio portraits and other vernacular photographs shot between the mid 1950s and late 1960s. How do we read the photo-archive of an 'Indian' woman born in 1941 to parents who were wards of the colonial state? A woman who was one generation removed from the sugar-cane plantations and coal mines where Indians were indentured as a coercive labour force? Influenced by (...)

    Of Sky, Water and Skin: Photographs From a Zanzibari Darkroom.Pamila Gupta - 2020 - Kronos 46 (1).
    ABSTRACT In this article, I propose to take up the concept and physical space of a photographic 'darkroom' located in Stone Town, Zanzibar, to explore a set of images from the Capital Art Studio collection produced by Ranchhod Oza, and inherited by his son Rohit Oza. I employ a concept of darkness to read this visual archive differently and propose multiple 'other lives' for a set of images. First, by bringing this African photography collection to light, I am taking it (...)

    Other Lives of the Image.Patricia Hayes & Iona Gilburt - 2020 - Kronos 46 (1).
    ABSTRACT This article seeks to examine the emergence of the image of hysteria that originated at the Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris in the late nineteenth century and has since been transferred across new generations of phototexts through ekphrasis. It is first shown how this stereotypically feminine and sexualised image was initiated by the medical tome Iconographie Photographique de la Salpêtrière - an effect that belies the physicians' original intentions - and is then taken up in the public imagination by the (...)

    The Decolonising Camera: Street Photography and the Bandung Myth.Christopher J. Lee - 2020 - Kronos 46 (1).
    ABSTRACT This article examines the visual archive of the 1955 Asian-African Conference held in Bandung, Indonesia. Better known as the Bandung Conference or simply Bandung, this diplomatic meeting hosted 29 delegations from countries in Africa and Asia to address questions of sovereignty and development facing the emergent postcolonial world. A number of well-known leaders attended, including Jawaharlal Nehru of India, Zhou Enlai of China, Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt, and Sukarno of the host country, Indonesia. Given its importance, the meeting (...)

    Attempted Portraits: Photography, Obscurity, and the Articulation of the Past.Christopher Morton - 2020 - Kronos 46 (1).
    ABSTRACT The essay draws on two case studies from the photographic archive of British social anthropologist Edward Evan Evans-Pritchard on a fieldwork expedition to Kenya and South Sudan in 1936. The case studies reveal how connections can be made within an archive to articulate new narratives around often well-known photographs. The case studies explore the relationship between two different practices of looking: that involved in the act of photography, and that of looking at archival photographs as historical sources. Whilst the (...)

    How Do We Look?John Peffer - 2020 - Kronos 46 (1).
    ABSTRACT In South Africa under apartheid, portrait images displayed in private homes emphasised the dignity of their subjects and the stability of family life during a period of indignity and social upheaval. But when interviewing families about them, one often encounters sensitivity issues of the sort too often passed over by scholars and curators who valorise studio practices without consulting the actual subjects of the images. These include a range of anxieties about repackaging for display in new contexts and for (...)

    An Openness to Experiment: Ruy Duarte de Carvalho's Anthropological Field Photography in Rural Southern Angola and its Archival Reusages.Ines Ponte - 2020 - Kronos 46 (1).
    ABSTRACT This article explores the afterlives of the photographic production by Ruy Duarte de Carvalho, a Portuguese-born Angolan anthropologist who amidst the country's long-lasting civil war engaged with the Ovakuvale trans-humant shepherds dwelling in the semi-arid region of southern Angola. Through the 1990s, Carvalho used analogue photographic cameras to document his field-work among the Ovakuvale, and afterwards engaged in various experiments with the medium for ethnographic purposes. Departing from the current assemblage of Carvalho's personal archive that remains after he passed (...)

    Theorising the Image as Act: Reading the Social and Political in Images of the Rural Eastern Cape.Candice Steele - 2020 - Kronos 46 (1).
    ABSTRACT Certain anthropological narratives of South Africa's Eastern Cape province, such as Monica Hunter's 1936 Reaction to Conquest and Philip Mayer's 1963 Townsmen or Tribesmen, persist as potent referential 'bodies of knowledge'. By laying down the coordinates of Black rural and urban experience, such studies continue to animate concepts of tradition and modernity, effectively conjuring up notions of 'the border', both literally and metaphorically. Encountering Pauline Ingle's photographic collection amidst these circuits of knowledge and ways of seeing is to recognise (...)

    ABSTRACT This article examines the output of Uganda's official Photographic Section from the years of the Idi Amin regime, an archive of 60,000 black and white images from which have recently come to light in the stores of the Uganda Broadcasting Corporation in Kampala. Drawing on recent developments in African visual studies, the article focuses in particular upon what this archive reveals about photographic circulations in and from Amin's Uganda. It finds that this new trove of negatives -when compared with (...)

  16. Carta de Berkeley sobre as erupções do monte Vesúvio.Jaimir Conte - 2020 - Kronos 6 (9):235-240.
    Tradução de uma carta do filósofo George Berkeley, publicada originalmente no Philosophical Transactions, boletim oficial da Royal Society, de Londres, em outubro de 1717. No extrato da carta aqui traduzida sobre as erupções do Vesúvio Berkeley revela­-se um observador curioso e preciso. É notável, acima de tudo, a qualidade literária do seu texto, uma característica que seus trabalhos anteriores, especialmente os Três diálogos entre Hylas e Philonous, de 1713, já haviam revelado. Essa talvez seja uma das principais razões que fazem (...)
