Abstract

Photography, at its most powerful, is a geographic medium unparalleled in shaping perceptions of place (van Gelder and Westgeest 2011). Whether viewed on a computer screen, in a gallery, through the pages of a book, or at a classroom lecture, photographic images of locations, near and far, can seem real and unmediated. They can transport people across vast distances of time and space.
