The publication Transformations, Exploring Changes in and Around Photography is a product of ‘Transformations’, a project that was initiated by Viewbook in 2016 to explore changes and support photography in a digitally connected world.
In this publication photographers and photography professionals reflect on what they see as the most interesting transformations in and around photography today. Through essays, interviews, photographic work and short quotes, it raises a conversation on how technological changes and shifts within the industry affect the role and work of the photographer today. Seen from different geographical and cultural perspectives, the material gives a snapshot of some of the changing attitudes, institutional values and practices in photography.
This is for you: the photographer, industry professional or student who wants to engage in the conversation and rethink photography with us.
