Whether they are using archive, manipulating advertising images, or images published by internet and social media users, photographers are no longer simply the person behind the camera clicking the shutter button. The image can either be shot, reproduced, copied, edited… While a number of photographic artists have begun to borrow imagery from the public, at the same time the consumer society is producing images that are absorbing photographic art forms. This talk will question the relation between art and commerce photographers' works and the explosion of image consumption and production in China today.
