Description

This paper explored the motif of technological reproductions in a variety of texts to better understand the power that these reproductions have as a social force. It gave further consideration to the changing nature of photography in a postmodern world where a true original is never created due to the proliferation of cell phone cameras, digital photograph sharing, and photography-specific social networking websites. In an increasingly visually literate world, photography is the common lens through which individuals choose to see and experience the world around them.
