‘Black Matrilineage, Photography, and Representation: Another Way of Knowing’ questions how the Black female body, specifically the Black maternal body, navigates interlocking structures that place a false narrative on her body and that of her maternal ancestors. This volume, which includes a curated selection of images, addresses the complicated relationship between Blackness and photography and, in particular, its gendered dimension, its relationship to health, sexuality, and digital culture – primarily in the context of racialized heteronormativity.
With over forty contributors, this volume draws on scholarly inquiry ranging from academic essays, interviews, poetry, to documentary practice, and on contemporary art. ‘Black Matrilineage, Photography, and Representation: Another Way of Knowing’ thus offers a cross-section of analysis on the topic of Black motherhood, mothering, and the participation of photography in the process.
