Family Secrets: Acts of Memory and Imagination

Front Cover
Annette Kuhn's work as a theorist of culture has won her a wide reputation for dissecting film and other images in books such as Women's Pictures and The Power of the Image. In Family Secrets, she turns her attention to the deconstruction of pictures closer to home--photographs from her own childhood and images from her shared ethnographic past--to trace a trajectory from personal to collective acts of memory.
