Throughout photography's history, failure has played an essential, recurring part in the development and perceived value of this medium. Exploring a range of failures – individual and institutional, technological and historiographical – Photography and Failure asks what it means to fail and considers how this narrative of failure has shaped our understanding of photography. From the trial-and-error beginnings of photochemistry to poor business decisions influenced by fickle public opinion and taste, the founders and early practitioners of photography frequently faced bankruptcy and ignominy. Alongside these individual 'failures', this collection of essays examines the role of museums in rediscovering, preserving and presenting photographs within institutions, as well as technological limitations, such as the problematic panoramic lens or the digital, archival failures of Snapchat. Moving beyond the physical photograph and these processes, the book also investigates the limitations of photographs themselves, as purveyors of truth, time, space, documentary realism and social change, whether these failures are used to effect or not. Finally, the book probes the historiographical failures affecting the discipline, drawing on key debates, such as the perceived over-emphasis on European and American photography, and the place of photography theory in contemporary art practice. Blurring the boundaries between traditional binaries of art and non-art photography, amateur and professional practice, and individual and corporate perspectives, Photography and Failure presents a new approach to understanding and evaluating photographic history.

In the twentieth century, the pioneering work of such art historians as Erwin Panofsky and Edgar Wind heightened our awareness of the relationship between Renaissance literature and the visual arts. By focusing on that relationship in the work of such poets as Sir Philip Sidney, John Donne, Richard Crashaw, Edmund Waller, and Robert Herrick, Norman K. Farmer, Jr., convincingly shows that they and other writers of the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries in England wrote with a lively and creative sense of the visual—a sense richly informed by the theory and practice of Renaissance art. Farmer begins by describing the powerful visual matrix that underlies the narrative structure of Sidney's New Arcadia. He compares the role of the visual in the poetry of Donne and Ben Jonson, and demonstrates how works by both Thomas Carew and Lord Herbert exhibit poetic invention according to familiar Renaissance pictorial themes. Herrick's Hesperides is shown to be the major seventeenth-century poetic application of the Horatian idea ut pictura poesis. A special feature of this gracefully written and enlightening volume is Farmer's discussion of Lady Drury's oratory at Hawstead Hall. Published here for the first time are photographs of this uniquely decorated oratory, in which themes from a variety of English and Continental emblem books were painted on the walls of a room apparently designed for private meditation.

Jojo und seine kleine Schwester Kayla leben bei ihren Großeltern Mam and Pop an der Golfküste von Mississippi. Leonie, ihre Mutter, kümmert sich kaum um sie. Sie nimmt Drogen und arbeitet in einer Bar. Wenn sie high ist, wird Leonie von Visionen ihres toten Bruders heimgesucht, die sie quälen, aber auch trösten. Mam ist unheilbar an Krebs erkrankt, und der stille und verlässliche Pop versucht, den Haushalt aufrecht zu erhalten und Jojo beizubringen, wie man erwachsen wird. Als der weiße Vater von Leonies Kindern aus dem Gefängnis entlassen wird, packt sie ihre Kinder und eine Freundin ins Auto und fährt zur »Parchment Farm«, dem staatlichen Zuchthaus, um ihn abzuholen. Eine Reise voller Gefahr und Hoffnung. Jesmyn Ward erzählt so berührend wie unsentimental von einer schwarzen Familie in einer von Armut und tief verwurzeltem Rassismus geprägten Gesellschaft. Was bedeuten familiäre Bindungen, wo sind ihre Grenzen? Wie bewahrt man Würde, Liebe und Achtung, wenn man sie nicht erfährt? Singt, ihr Lebenden und ihr Toten, singt ist ein großer Roman, getragen von Wards so besonderer melodischer Sprache, ein zärtliches Familienporträt, eine Geschichte von Hoffnungen und Kämpfen, voller Anspielungen auf das Alte Testament und die Odyssee.
