This part of the symbolic process is complex and I cannot address all relevant aspects here. I have thus chosen to apply the framework to four selected areas: the simultaneous availability of a pre-death and postmortem photograph (juxtaposition); the character and identity of Said before the murder (identification); the nonuniqueness of his fate (universalization); and the circumstances surrounding the murder (innocence and moral/legal corruption). Juxtaposition It has already been noted and shown how the postmortem photograph of Khaled Said was often accompanied in its public career by a ‘‘normal’’ pre-death photograph.

Even if this is counterfactual speculation I think it safe to say that it would not. In trying to understand how and why certain photographs acquire mobilizing potential I find it absolutely crucial to consider the role of political activists. In relation to Khaled Said I argue that the postmortem 18 THOMAS OLESEN photograph in itself contained morally shocking potential, but that its transformation from horrible photograph to injustice symbol with societywide implications required the active intervention of political activists.
