1. Warley, Francesca Jean. Iconic Photographs, Unwitting Subjects: Roles of Photography in the Representation of Displaced Persons within the 2015 European Refugee and Migrant “Crisis”.

Degree: 2019, Leiden University

In this thesis I research issues of photographic representation of displaced persons, specifically regarding the so-called European refugee crisis since 2015. I compare the roles of photojournalism, or news photography produced for a mass audience, and art/documentary photography. I argue that certain properties within the latter practices are better suited to the representation of refugees and migrants, whose identity, as argued by Giorgio Agamben and Hannah Arendt amongst others, is already extremely vulnerable. My case studies are the photos of the young refugee Alan Kurdi, who washed up on a beach having died in a sea-crossing and whose body was photographed by a Turkish photojournalist at the scene; and 3 art/documentary photographers who have all focused on refugees and/or migrants as their subjects. Advisors/Committee Members: Houwen, Janna (advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: Representation; Refugees; Migrants; Photography; Mass media; Alan Kurdi
