At the turn of the twentieth century, Greece and Spain saw an influx of immigrants from developing nations. And as their foreign populations grew, both countries' national media were there to document the change - in the process shaping perceptions of the immigrant groups by their new countries and the world.
Picturing Immigration offers a comparative study of the photojournalistic framing of immigrants in these two southern European nations, which were recently transformed from senders to receivers of migrants. Going beyond traditional media analysis, it focuses on images rather than text to explore a host of hot topics, including media representation of minorities, immigration and stereotypes.
