Captive Images examines the law’s treatment of photographic evidence and uses it to investigate the relationship between law, image and fantasy. Based around the scholarly examination of a bank robbery, in which a surveillance camera captures the robbery in progress, Katherine Biber draws upon critical writing from psychoanalysis, postcolonialism, art, law, literature and feminism to 'read' this crime, its texts and its images.

The result is an interdisciplinary study of crime that unfolds a compelling narrative about race relations, national identity and fear.

This book is an essential read for all levels of law students studying or interested in law, criminology and cultural studies.
