Abstract

In Visual Methodologies (Rose, 2001), I was introduced to a number of useful ideas, techniques and concepts, including auteur theory, which helped me design and develop my own doctoral research (Mannay, 2010). For this reason, when I was invited to review Doing Family Photography: The domestic, the Public and the Politics of Sentiment, I was eager to read the book and gain some new insights into the visual. I was not disappointed. Rose presents family photographs both in their domestic settings and in the public realm, not simply as a collection of images but rather as a social practice. Drawing on the disciplines of anthropology, geography and material culture studies, Rose takes the reader on a journey that reveals not what photographs are but what photographs do.
