Andrew Lazarow The Politics of Staring: Visual Rhetorics of Disability in Popular Photography is written by Rosemarie Garland-Thompson who addresses the way in which American culture views disabled people. Rosemarie discusses how in America’s past disabled people were viewed as different, but in more recent years the advancement in photography has enabled people with disabilities to feel as if they are part of the ordinary world. Rosemarie defends her pitch by explaining the four primary visual rhetorics of disability. According to Rosemarie’s essay, these visual rhetorics are wondrous, sentimental, exotic and realism. Through photography these visual rhetorics have helped, but not solved the problem of being viewed differently. The first rhetoric Rosemarie explains is wondrous by using the example of Charles Trip. Trip is in a picture with a completely normal setting; he is sitting in a chair next to a set table.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
