Abstract
My research focuses on the history of photography, with a particular emphasis on the interwar period in Europe. I am especially interested in photography's development, and its potential as both accomplice and opponent, under conditions of unfreedom. I am currently at work on a book about Alexander Rodchenko's propaganda photographs of the White Sea-Baltic Canal, one of the first Soviet forced labor camps.
