Even if we Visual Injustice Symbols in the Egyptian Revolution, 2010–2011 19 accept the basic thrust of the argument we must be cautious not to overstate this globalizing dynamic. It should be borne in mind that a photograph of suffering is always local, private, and particular; suffering, in other words, always happens somewhere and to someone. What is profoundly modern about photography, however, is that it allows such local experiences to be radically disembedded (Giddens, 1991; see also Sontag, 2003, p.

The paradox rests on ‘‘y the co-existence of two messages, the one without a code (the photographic analogue), the other with a code y’’ (p. 19). Thus, contrary to artistic creations, photographs claim an analogical relationship with reality; they are considered to represent reality ‘‘as it is’’ (Barthes, 1977, pp. 43–44; Messaris & Abraham, 2003, p. 217; Sontag, 1979, p. 3 In this sense the photograph in itself is devoid of meaning (Taylor, 1998, p. 55): it denotes rather than connotes. Yet this apparent lack of meaning of the photograph is immediately ‘‘filled out’’ when it is made public and subjected to an audience.
