This new edition of The Photographic Image in Digital Culture explores the condition of photography after some 20 years of remediation and transformation by digital technology. Through ten especially commissioned essays, by some of the leading scholars in the field of contemporary photography studies, a range of key topics are discussed including: the meaning of software in the production of photograph; the nature of networked photographs; the screen as the site of photographic display; the simulation of photography in the videogame; photography, ubiquitous computing and technologies of ambient intelligence; developments in vernacular photography and social media; the photograph and the digital archive; the curation and exhibition of the networked photograph; the dominance of the image bank in commercial and advertising photography; the complexities of citizen photojournalism. A recurring theme addressed throughout is the nature of a€˜photography after photographya€™ and the paradoxical nature of the medium in the 21st century; a time when the traditional technology of photography has become defunct while there is more a€˜photographya€™ than ever. This is an ideal book for students studying photography and digital media.His teachingfocuses uponnew media and visualculture and heis coauthor ofThe New Media Handbook (Routledge, 2006), ... second edition 2011, editedwith Amit Pinchevski), and Democracy and Communication: Mutual Perspectives ( 2009, anbsp;...
