Buongiorno a tutt*, questa mattina ho saputo della pubblicazione da parte di Tammy S. Gordon del suo libro sulle memorie di massa e l'attivismo politico nella storia, attraverso la fotografia. Tammy insegna storia e public history in North Carolina e doveva essere con noi in un bel panel dell'AIPH a Mestre-Venezia a maggio scorso per la 4a conferenza dell'associazione italiana di public history rimandata -se possibile- a fine maggio 2021.

In 1888, the Eastman Dry Plate and Film Company offered the first portable camera that allowed users to conveniently take photos, using leisure travel as a primary marketing feature to promote it. The combination of portability, ease of use, and mass advertising fed into a national trend of popular photography that drew on Americans’ increasing mobility and leisure time. The Kodak Company and the first generation of tourist photographers established new standards for personal archiving that amplified the individual’s role in authoring the national narrative. But not everyone had equal access to travel and tourism, and many members of the African American, Native American, and gay and lesbian communities used the camera to counter the racism, homophobia, and classism that shaped public spaces. In this groundbreaking history, Tammy S. Gordon tells the story of the camera’s emerging centrality in leisure travel across the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and its role in “the mass production of memory,” a process in which users crafted a visual archive attesting to their experiences, values, and circumstances, setting the stage for the customizable visual culture of the digital age.
