Mobile Media Photography: New modes of engagement

Connie Svabo, Michael Shanks

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


Mobile media photography marks a shift in orientation from the image towards photography as a mode of engagement. This leads is to explore the processes of experience and documentation that mobile media help to constitute. We unfold two aspects of the process of photography: photography as temporal, archaeological engagement, and photography as spatial, geographical engagement. Finally, as a closing perspective we point out that vernacular photography may be read as an intersection between a personal means of expression and corporate financial interest.
