"Fugitive Images" gathers the most current debates about the image's complex relation to the things it seems to document, and its powerful ability to indicate or attest to what has been. Addressing the gap between the image and what it tries to represent, these essays reveal that acts of looking and thinking are more powerful than images themselves. The contributors include Herbert Blau, Edward Buscombe, Eduardo Cadava, Philippe Dubois, R gis Durand, Tom Gunning, Lynne Kirby, Patricia Mellencamp, cine O'Brien, Patrice Petro, John Tagg, Linda Williams, and Charles Wolfe.show more
