Item description for Mitra Tabrizian: Beyond The Limits by Mitra Tabrizian Homi Bhabha...

Mitra Tabrizian's films and photographs combine techniques from documentary photography, reports, and advertising to make the viewer aware of the ideologies underlying the construction of cultural identities. As critical theorist Stuart Hall explains, "The images which comprise the projects in Mitra Tabrizian's Beyond the Limits are indeed fictive visual spaces. There is evidence everywhere of a photographic practice inscribed by the cinematic. Some reference their cinematic equivalents directly--for example, the deliberate Kitano-Tarantino-Reservoir Dog echoes and references in the implied narrative of Tabrizian's The Perfect Crime. However, far from merely mimicking the cinematic discourse of the contemporary crime film, or mounting a moral critique of its violence, Tabrizian unravels and reworks its logic from the inside. Un-framing the images from the Pulp Fiction-like locations and re-staging them, as she says, 'within the wider contexts of racial and sexual violence' allows the frames to become charged by deeper, more unconscious currents, permitting these powerful and eloquent contemporary images to signify otherwise. The racial and sexual edge, so thoroughly disavowed in Tarantino's cynical, cartoon-eye universe, is restored."

Reviews - What do customers think about Mitra Tabrizian: Beyond The Limits?

very good but not great  Apr 3, 2007
The cover picture is great. It covers all the 'acted spontaneity' that should be in the rest of the book. But most of the other photographs are just plain drab or rather tiring. maybe because the subjects look too contrived or maybe due to their overly odd lighting. Many look like stills from a noir film.

A few stand out as superb photographs, such as the cover one, where the model looks truely caught in a moment of her reality. Minimalist surrealism is the best overall theme, but personally i'd prefer less obviously staged photography, or atleast photos that leave you guessing whether it really happened or not.
