Digital Photography and Everyday Life: Empirical studies on
material visual practices explores the role that digital
photography plays within everyday life. With contributors from ten
different countries and backgrounds in a range of academic
disciplines - including anthropology, media studies and visual
culture - this collection takes a uniquely broad perspective on
photography by situating the image-making process in wider
discussions on the materiality and visuality of photographic
practices and explores these through empirical case studies. By
focusing on material visual practices, the book presents a
comprehensive overview of some of the main challenges digital
photography is bringing to everyday life. It explores how the
digitization of photography has a wide-reaching impact on the use
of the medium, as well as on the kinds of images that can be
produced and the ways in which camera technology is developed. The
exploration goes beyond mere images to think about cameras,
mediations and technologies as key elements in the development of
visual digital cultures. Digital Photography and Everyday Life will
be of great interest to students and scholars of Photography,
Contemporary Art, Visual Culture and Media Studies, as well as
those studying Communication, Cultural Anthropology, and Science
and Technology Studies.
