It is nearly a half century since the public's first wide-spread encounter
with digitally processed photographs, yet it was not these
early close encounters that were responsible for the current digital
photographic revolution. It was, rather, the computer desktop
revolution that came out of the turbulent 1970s that placed
powerful digital technology in the hands of creative individuals
interested in social and aesthetic alternatives, that was the real
catalyst for this change. As a new generation and iteration of artists
have grown up knowing only photography in a digital form,
it is now important to take a look back in order to understand
and recognize the significant creative achievements that these individuals
were able to accomplish and to critically interpret how
their legacy might influence the future of photography.
