Tomasz FERENC – Image, Culture and Cruelty: Photography and the Modern Iconsphere of Violence

Cena brutto: 7,00 PLN

Relations between image and violence need to be analyzed in a variety of theoretical perspectives and contexts. Such a relation always adopts a different shape, serves a different cause and has different consequences. With the advent of photography, visual violence has gotten a new intensity. Mechanically reproduced images became easy to distribute and came into widespread, mass circulation. Another revolutionary change was caused by the  universal availability of the Internet. In the present article, an attempt was taken to point to the dynamics of this cultural phenomenon by showing its examples in fine-art photography, commemorative photography, advertising photography and photojournalism.

Keywords: violence, photography, art, photojournalism, advertisement, photo-mobbing, Internet.
