With the advent of digital technologies and the Internet, photography

collection, usage, and circulation of photographic images on interactive
World Wide Web platforms.
International contributors from across the arts and humanities consider
fundamental concepts that are associated with the practical applications
of convergent technologies and media, focusing on the role of digital and
mobile cultures andimage-makinginthe everyday lifeof citizens andtheir
experience of today’s ‘hypervisual’ digital universe, while exploring how
contemporary artists creatively interactwith such newphotographic contexts. Accompanied by a specially commissioned photo-essay,the volume
