Photographie et récit de voyage : regards pluriels sur les voyages de Freya Stark en Orient

Abstract : This work analyses one of Freya Stark‘s first travel book, The Valleys of the Assassins, and studies at the same time a few of the photographs she took during her travels in Orient. This paper studies the influence of western culture and in particular of orientalism and colonialism over the way the author adresses the Orient and travel in general. It considers the text in details in order to draw conclusions from it about th way Freya Stark communicates her experiences in both the text and the photographs. This study aims to problematize the idea of « gaze » or gazes which are those we have on travel in general and those conveyed by the text and the photographs.
