Seeing Justice

Witnessing, Crime and Punishment in Visual Media

Mary Angela Bock

  • Includes never-before published interviews with pioneering journalists who've covered spectacular cases and individuals involved with cases that made headlines in social media
  • Offers a model for image re-contextualization in the digital age, illustrating the way images are used as affordances in narratives and the way digitization offers both new opportunities for counternarratives and pitfalls for factual democratic discourse
  • Features observational research never before published from prominent court cases including including Jerry Sandusky's child sexual assault trial in 2012; George Zimmerman's trial for the murder of Trayvon Martin in 2013, and Bill Cosby's sexual assault case in 2017
  • Offers insight into the importance of images as evidence in the digital public sphere, and their production might well be considered an essential human capability, if not a human right
