Nonhuman Photography (MIT Press) by Joanna Zylinska
English | November 3rd, 2017 | ISBN: 0262037025, 9780262037020 | 267 Pages | True PDF | 15.41 MB

Today, in the age of CCTV, drones, medical body scans, and satellite images, photography is increasingly decoupled from human agency and human vision. In Nonhuman Photography, Joanna Zylinska offers a new philosophy of photography, going beyond the human-centric view to consider imaging practices from which the human is absent. Zylinska argues further that even those images produced by humans, whether artists or amateurs, entail a nonhuman, mechanical element – that is, they involve the execution of technical and cultural algorithms that shape our image-making devices as well as our viewing practices.
