BOOK LAUNCH

AT THE ROYAL ANTHROPOLOGICAL INSTITUTE

Photography in the Age of Snapchat

Prof Daniel Miller, University College London

Monday 14 December at 5.30pm

With well over two billion photographs posted daily on social media this is now the dominant form of contemporary photography. It also means the photograph takes its place with text and voice as central to contemporary human communication and as an aspect of sociality. All of this should be welcomed by anthropologists, since as the photograph moves to the centre stage of everyday life, it also provides new possibilities for anthropological study. But first we need to acknowledge what is happening. 

Photography in the Age of Snapchat by Prof Daniel Miller is the first pamphlet in the Anthropology & Photography series.  The series comes from the Royal Anthropological Institute's Anthropology and Photography Conference in 2014.

The event is free, but tickets must be booked. To book tickets please go to http://danielmiller.eventbrite.co.uk
