p. 129Afterword: Digital photography
- Steve Edwards
Some argue that newer technologies in digital photography represent a continuation of key themes and practices from older methods. Others suggest that the introduction of digital photography represents a radical new departure. The Afterword looks at new photographic technologies and compares them in terms of technique of rendering of the image and manipulation of images. The digitalization of photographs has changed both the means by which photographs are made, and the way they can be stored and circulated. Technology today can create a heightened, disturbing realism.
