Imagi(ni)ng Gender and Conflict

Author: Adam Jones


Over the past decade, photography has gradually moved to the forefront of my creative and intellectual engagement with the world. It is only natural that as I explored gender and conflict in my research and writing, my eye would be drawn to images evocative of this theme. The request from Feminist Review to supply commentary for a selection of my photojournalism led to discussions with one of this issue’s editors, Laura Shepherd, about which photos might best serve. I was thus able to consider for inclusion images that had caught Laura’s eye more than mine. I extend my deep gratitude to Laura, both for commissioning this article and for shaping it with the insights she contributed and prompted.
