Safe Spectatorship? Photography, Space, Terrorism and the London Bombings

Drawing upon the notion of the uncanny, this article examines my documentary photography concerning the ‘everyday’ indeterminate and potentially ominous spaces around the London transport system following the bombing incidents on the 7th July, 2005. The photographs consist of reframing images found which draw attention to the lingering reminders of terrorism within the cityscape. This paper examines also how issues of representation, race, suspects, victims, protest, defiance and accusations can be evoked in the ficto-critical use of urban documentary photography.
