*Picturing Immigration: Photojournalistic Representation of Immigrants in Greek and Spanish Press*
by Athanasia Batziou

*About the book:*
In recent years Greece and Spain have seen an influx of immigrants from nearby 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. 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.,id=4831/
