    This essay explores space and time in the photography and film of Allan Sekula. I argue that the linked ideas of Uneven and Combined development (LD Trotsky) and the chronotope (Bakhtin) provide ways for thinking about contemporary capitalism and Sekula's attempt to draw the 'hidden hand' into visibility. The essay was published simultaneously in English, French and Portuguese volumes. It has since been published in another French journal and has appeared in Italian and a Chinese version is forthcoming. Details below list only the English edition and I have listed the others here: ”Allan Sekula’s Chronotopes: Uneven and Combined Capitalism”, in H Van Gelde (ed.)
