Overview

Back in stock! From the birth of photojournalism and the rise of the picture press, beginning with seminal international periodicals like Vu and Life, to the sci-fi setting of MIT's Media Lab and the possibility of a "hyper-photography" that would capture our dreams and thoughts, Fred Ritchin's In Our Own Image is a classic account of technology's impact on what we see, and, ultimately, what we believe, about the world.
