Emerging from the advancement in media technologies, the new photographic practices of the last decade have shifted the power of images by the speed of rapid dissemination and multiplication via the digital network. With the underlying contention that new modes of communication offer new possibilities for self-realization and sociopolitical relations, this lecture investigates the ways by which eyewitness photographs and user-generated photo compositions, coupled with social media technologies, reconstruct the extent of public awareness and action against unjust political affairs. It also examines the impact and power of the digital networked image on politics by analyzing pivotal photographs and photo-memes of contemporary social change.
