Summary
"Abigail Solomon-Godeau has set as her task the examination of the politics of photographic criticism, history, and practice. Photography at the Dock is a revisionist approach to the history of photography, a critique of photographic modernism and the institutions promoting it, and a feminist exploration of the camera's role in producing (and reproducing) dominant social and sexual ideology."--Publisher description
