Spectacle and spectres: London 7 july 2005
Gillian Rose pages -


Rose discusses the personal photographs, released by the Evening Standard and replicated by other national newspapers, of dead and missing victims of the London 7/7 bombings. Rose argues that the photographs aimed to incorporate victims and readers in a community of normality and thus to erase questions of responsibility. She suggests a method of looking differently at photographs of the dead, acknowledging difference and a responsibility to engage with that difference.
