<p>Abstract:</p><p>This essay explores the role of the photographic image in the documentation of lynchings and racial violence in the United States, beginning with the idea that all photographs are âabandonings.â It offers an overview of the history of lynchings that occurred between the end of the Civil War and the present day, before exploring the impact of lynching photographs and postcards collected in the 2000 publication <i>Without Sanctuary</i>. Chiefly, the essay introduces a new body of work entitled âThe Spaces We Inherit.â This is a series of photographs of lynching sites that present racial violence in terms of spatial documentation, reflecting changes and stasis to the physical and psychic geographyâ<i>what is both seen and not seen</i>. âThe Spaces We Inheritâ also includes portraits and interviews with individuals connected to the physical locations and the events themselves. âThe Spaces We Inherit,â along with its predecessors, is a refutation of willed amnesia and what Lillian Smith called âthe tyranny of silence.â</p>
