Photographs and counter-narratives
The paper comments on Barbara Harrison's article, Photographic Visions and Narrative Inquiry, focusing on the analysis of relationships between narratives and counter-narratives. Following Harrison's claim that photographs have three main functions (preserving memories about the past, narrating and organizing everyday experiences, and communicating and building social relations), I discuss situations of social, interpersonal and intrapersonal conflict related to narrative and counter-narrative photographs. These are situations such as disputing possession of valuable narrative photographs and defacing and destroying counter-narrative photographs (as well as expressing hostility against their producers, possessors and users). The paper also describes the use of photographs to construct negative and positive narratives.
