Photography’s value shift
Photography’s value shift. Today is World Photography Day and the best piece of writing today came from Om Malik for The New Yorker.
“Photography has seen the value shift from “the stand-alone individual aesthetic of the artist to the collaborative and social aesthetic of services like Facebook and Instagram.” In the future, he said, the “real value creation will come from stitching together photos as a fabric, extracting information and then providing that cumulative information as a totally different package.””
Apart from the New Yorker piece Om is sharing some more insights & thoughts on photography on his blog, a post well worth a read.
