Many of the international artists create their work with the overload of digital images they find on the internet. They recycle, clip and cut pictures from Google Earth, Google Street View, Facebook, Flickr, etc. This exhibition opens a debate on issues such as copyright, authorship, privacy and the future of photography.
From Here On sheds a radical new light on photography. Many of the international artists create their work with the overload of digital images they find on the internet. They recycle, clip and cut pictures from Google Earth, Google Street View, Facebook, Flickr, etc. Does this mean that traditional photography is dead?
