Summary
"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."--Jacket
