Personal photographs provide a means of creating a manufactured autobiography for both private and public consumption, resulting in a narrative based on how one wants others to see them and who one wishes to be. This lecture discusses how identity has been performed and constructed from the daguerreotype to the present day as the internet and social networking sites allow for identity to be manufactured as never before. This talk also discusses the reasons why people willingly put their personal photographs into the public realm (and why others are interested in looking at them), as well as what specific photos selected for social networking sites or internet dating profiles convey about the individual.
