Send me an image : from postcards to social media by Felix Hoffmann( Book )

2 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photography has always been a social medium shared with others. But why do we communicate with each other using images? And how do the virtual essences that are photographs change our societies? Featuring works by Moyra Davey, Gilbert & George, Theresa Martinat, Thomas Ruff and Clare Strand, among others, Send me an Image. From Postcards to Social Media explores the development of photography from a means of communication in the nineteenth century to its current digital representation online. Its focus lies on the dialogue between traveling images throughout photography's 150-year history and contemporary artists beginning in the 1970s who work with both traditional and modern photographic techniques, uses and modes of dissemination. The book considers the deeper social dimensions of image communication, and the transformation of photography from an illustrative medium to one of the most significant forms of dialogue and exchange today. The works in Send me an Image furthermore illuminate phenomena such as censorship, surveillance and algorithmic regulation, which affect many activities in our data-driven era. Images now shared via social media not only spread rapidly but can also take on their own news values and as 'pure' messages may even spark protests of all kinds - often beyond the scope of their original uses.

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the years between 1980 and 2000, Stephan Erfurt published numerous photo spreads in various magazines, thus establishing his international reputation. He created an oeuvre full of story-telling and poetry, at times melancholic and tender, at other times as harsh depictions of reality. Erfurt often concentrates on the atmospherically dense detail; as a curious world observer, his work is akin to that of an essayist. One of his specialties is photographing in twilight, shortly before sunrise or after sunset. His private and professional move to Berlin in the mid-1990s leads to completely different images, such as the famous close-ups of the television tower on Alexanderplatz. In 1978, the then 20-year-old Erfurt fled from the confinement of his hometown of Wuppertal. In Paris, he discovered the medium of photography. He then studied photography in Essen and, beginning in the mid-1980s, worked primarily from his new residence in New York. When the FAZ Magazin, which had become Erfurt's most important medium of distribution, was discontinued in 1999, he simultaneously also more or less stopped shooting his own photographs. A short while later, he founded C/O Berlin together with two friends, which quickly became an internationally networked photo institution
Songs of the Sky. Photography & the Cloud by James Bridle( Book )

2 editions published in 2021 in German and English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thinking about photography today entails a consideration of the infrastructures that form and organize networks. Regardless of whether images are generated by surveillance cameras or satellites, or consist of archival material or personal vacation photographs on our smartphones and laptops, almost all photographs are saved as digital data on the cloud. But the cloud is not a romantic place up there. It is a network that constantly relocates our data. It is a machine through which artificial intelligence learns. It is also a techno-capitalist system that is lent material form by hard drives, cables, and computers. Similar to the way that clouds resonated in the beginning of abstraction in photography one hundred years ago, the way artists today interact with the cloud reflects the twenty-first century's visions of the future. Juxtaposing historical and contemporary photographs, the exhibition mirrors the consequences of cloud-computing technology on climate change and geopolitics." (site web Les Rencontres d'Arles)
