Joshua Schuster (University of Western Ontario) : « Images of Extinction«
« The science of extinction arose in the nineteenth century at the same time as the development of the technology of photography. This talk examines how the destruction of the bison in North America became the first extinction event to be captured by photography. The visual evidence supplied by this extinction event has since played an important context and influence on subsequent photography of ‘last animals’ facing extinction. I will discuss some of this photography and related visual culture leading up to the contemporary moment ».
