Listening to Images by Tina M. Campt

Listening to Images
Duke University Press, 2017

This vivid, concise book invites us to more fully engage our sensorium in apprehending photographic renderings of black subjects. Campt beautifully offers new language for thinking through the frequencies of visual images and the aural registers of blackness across the African diaspora. I highly recommend this book for not only scholars of black, visual, or cultural studies, but also anyone concerned with the affectivity of race or interested in moving beyond normative understandings of the five senses.
