Item Type: Book


New insights into the shifting cultures of today’s 'hypervisual’ digital universe.
With the advent of digital technologies and the Internet, photography can, at last, fulfill its promise and forgotten potential as both a versatile mediumand an adaptable creative practice. This multidisciplinary volume
provides new insights into the shifting cultures affecting the production, 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 and image-making in the everyday life of citizens and their experience of today’s ‘hypervisual’ digital universe, while exploring how contemporary artists creatively interact with such new photographic contexts. Accompanied by a specially commissioned photo-essay,the volume is an important new resource for photographers, artists, and curators as well as academics.
