The Internet has changed the way we consider photography, and the medium has undergone remarkable transformations at every level. No longer restricted to the gallery wall or the printed page, photography now regularly-and sometimes exclusively-appears onscreen. More significantly, Web 2.0 is influencing photo culture around the world by connecting international audiences to art experiences, enabling the discovery of new work and presenting never-before-seen channels of expression and participation. Inspired by the Web's innovations, Andy Adams has published FlakPhoto.com, an online art space that promotes photography from within the online community, since 2006. He'll explore the intersection of online publishing, social media, and community collaboration in this lively discussion about photography in the Internet Era.
