Call for Manuscript Proposals

"Photography on the Internet - the new HEGEMONY"

© Julian Burgess 2008 Creative Commons

The advent of the Internet and digitization of the image has brought about what appears to be a debatable democratization of the medium of photography. The “WWW” has expanded what images we experience and the way we experience them. It changed the avenues for the embodiment, dissemination and consumption of images, opening new channels for _expression_, participation and exchange.

The form and function of more traditional photography gatekeepers such as curators, book editors and publishers, museums and galleries, has been challenged by websites/galleries, blogs, and online publications as open platforms. As a result a serious viewer is now required to look harder and broader through the maze of images online.

The editors of VJIC are accepting proposals manuscript, for Issue #4 (September 2013) that address, but is not limited to, the following topics:

- The challenge to traditional institutions - what role for galleries and museums;
- The democratization of the medium of photography: implications for practice and access;
- The movement of marginalized or ghettoized voices towards visibility;
- Curators of / in the Internet era;
- Bloggers - voice or chaos;
- Erik Kessels - case study;
- Online communities - case studies: e.g. Flickr, Instagram, FlakPhoto;
- Snapshot as Art;
- Image search engines as gatekeepers;  
(ie: Taryn Simon and Aaron Swartz ‘Image Atlas’ http://imageatlas.org/)
