Female Authorship and the Documentary Image

Catherine Summerhayes

Edinburgh University Press

The chapter is focused primarily on Farrow’s compassionate motivation and how her compassion is embodied in her photographic work whilst it is also, inevitably, compromised by distribution and internal content. Farrow’s photographs and videos show a deep compassionate understanding of her subjects. Her work provides a rich context for examining how such compassion and care might be used also to contribute towards a broader discussion of the documentary image as an ethically responsible object.
