Fotografie und Gesellschaft

Phänomenologische und wissenssoziologische Perspektiven

Series: Sozialtheorie
Edited by: Thomas S. Eberle
In collaboration with: Niklaus Reichle

Photography has remained a neglected topic in the social sciences, although its meaning for contemporary society has grown dramatically. This volume fills that gap: with analyses not only of image interpretation, but also of the photographers' actions per se as well as the confrontation with photos. The contributions on the photo-practice of laymen and professionals, the transition from analog to digital photography, taking pictures with smartphones and photo-apps, the treatment of photo albums, and on the ways that media use photos are not only intended for social, media, and cultural scholars, but for everyone interested in photography.
