Oral #10: Adrienne Krueger – The Commune in Commodities: Bruno Braquehais’s Photographs of the Paris Commune of 1871

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Lela Graybill

My research reframes Bruno Braquehais’s photography of the Paris Commune by analyzing it within the context of the surviving album in which it appears, Siège de Paris. With reference to the conventions of travel photography of Paris and Victorian travel photography at large, I argue that Braquehais’s photographs of the Commune are distinctly unrevolutionary because they commodify the Commune and Otherize their Communard subjects.
