Abstract:

This article will analyse the relationship, reflexively dramatized by With Raised Hands, between still and moving images, taking into account the ambiguous way in which photographs record and memorialize both life and death. This ambiguity is especially charged, historically and psychically, when the photograph registers a traumatic – and now iconic – encounter.
