Alphabetographies; or, Why Displacement is the Signature of the Photographic Medium

Taking its point of departure from a set of images drawn from Susan Meiselas’ photographic work in Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Kurdistan—from 1979 to the present—this presentation will suggest that a photograph has never been a single thing, has never had a consistent form, has never remained identical to itself. Instead it has continually been altered, transformed, and circulated, and is by definition itinerant. It comes into being only as a consequence of reproduction, displacement, and itinerancy. This is why photography is perhaps a privileged medium for considering the disappearance and displacement of persons within zones of conflict and why Meiselas has claimed that she and her camera are “attracted like a magnet to mass graves, destroyed villages, the missing.” Against these political forms of displacement, Meiselas encourages a different kind of armed resistance, one born from the force of visual literacy. In order to begin to read an image, she suggests, we have to understand that the image itself can never appear alone: it requires language to begin to give us a context through which we can start to situate the image in relation to the several traces that are sealed within it, like a kind of archive, like an alphabet that remains to be read. As we will see, this visual literacy is most legible when we are able to register the displacements that are not only the signature of the photographic medium but also the condition of all photographic subjects.
