        Subject: book launch: Photography in the Age of Snapchat


BOOK LAUNCH
AT THE ROYAL ANTHROPOLOGICAL INSTITUTE
LONDON:

Photography in the Age of Snapchat
Prof Daniel Miller, University College London
Monday 14 December at 5.30pm

With well over two billion photographs posted daily on social media this 
is now the dominant form of contemporary photography. It also means the 
photograph takes its place with text and voice as central to 
contemporary human communication and as an aspect of sociality. All of 
this should be welcomed by anthropologists, since as the photograph 
moves to the centre stage of everyday life, it also provides new 
possibilities for anthropological study. But first we need to 
acknowledge what is happening.

Photography in the Age of Snapchat by Prof Daniel Miller is the first 
pamphlet in the Anthropology and Photography series.  The series comes 
from the Royal Anthropological Institute's Anthropology and Photography 
Conference in 2014.

The event is free, but tickets must be booked. To book tickets please go
