In Our Own Image: The Coming Revolution in Photographyby Fred Ritchin (Text by), Fred Richin, Steve Dietz (Other), Phyllis Thompson Reid (Other)
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. A seminal text that has shaped the debate about digital imaging since its initial publication in 1990, this edition has been updated throughout to reflect recent changes in technology--for example, the exponential growth of the World Wide Web--and includes a substantial new foreword by the author.
