'How does one articulate the structure of visibility itself? The author takes up this challenge as he elaborates new theoretical perspectives on visual hegemony, addressing the political processes of the photographic image. How does photography invoke an epistemology that subtly determines the scope and limit of what can be understood, said or done with images? Srivatsan uses gender, caste and class as frames of reference in these stimulating essays on the visual image.' (excerpt from front flap)
