Inessential views of art and photography.

Digital Photography and Everyday Life

 

A new book about contemporary photographic practices. The volume contains empirical work by emergent researchers as well as critical contextualizations by established scholars. I have contributed with a chapter based on my PhD work. Check out chapter 8. (Digital) Photography, Experience and Space in Transnational Families.

It is well worth a read!

“This is an outstanding collection of essays which invites a radical rethinking of photography.
