"After Photography examines the myriad ways in which the digital media has fundamentally altered the way we receive visual information, from photos of news events taken by ordinary people on cell phones to the widespread use of image surveillance. Simultaneously, the increased manipulation of photographs has made photography suspect as reliable documentation, raising questions about its role in recounting personal and public histories. In the tradition of John Berger and Susan Sontag, Fred Ritchin analyzes photography's failings and reveals untapped potentials for this evolving medium."--BOOK JACKET.
