Trade Paperback Used-Very Good We live in an age in which text is gradually losing ground to the image. People read less and spend ever more time in front of the computer ... screen or the TV. Events and personal lives are no longer only documented in reports, letters, or diaries, but also with digital cameras and video recorders. The fast-moving images of MTV continue to exercise increasing influence on youth culture. Images obviously have a certain directness, accessibility, and attraction that puts them at an advantage in the competition to grab the audience's attention. To stimulate an exchange of ideas about this contemporary situation, six writers, scholars, and experts were invited to devote an essay to the problems and potential of visual culture, examining questions of digitization, reproduction and authorship, the influence on our historic consciousness, and the impact on expressive traditions. Published in conjunction with The National Institute for Photography in the Netherlands. Read more Show Less

Overview

The term 'visual culture' crops up everywhere. But what does it mean? Could we say there is a deluge of images? Does this threaten other cultural assets, such as the word? What do we stand to lose, and what do we stand to gain? The Netherlands Foto Institut (NFI) invited six writers and academics to write essays on these issues in order to stimulate discussion about images and visual culture. The result is a bundle of essays representing a broad range of opinions and ideas about today's image society, on photography, film, video, the internet and television, and on the changes stemming from the digitization of these media. The Image Society is a guide for everyone who has an interest in the world of the image.
