    Hardcover · Picturing Disability Kindle Ø picturing book, disability book, Picturing Disability PDFAn absolutely fascinating book which though rather academic kept me spellbound and is an easy read This book deals with two topics I am most particularly interested in 1 the treatment of the disabled in the early part of the 20th century and earlier and 2 unsettling or uniue vintage photographs The author covers the periods from the 1860s to the 1970s however the majority of the photographs studied mainly fall between the 1880s and the 1930s The aspect that most drew me to this book and that I appreciated most was that the author investigates the photography of the disabled from the point of view of the purpose of the photographer and photograph within the era and society from which it comes There is no modern chastising The author warns in the Introduction that some people may find his treatise offensive because of this but that is far from the intentions of his sociological intentions I found the book entirely engrossin
