Jelena Matić


The advent of photography was one of the most important discoveries in the culture and the society of 19th century. At the end of the 20th and beginning of the 21st century this role belong to digital technology. One of the consequences this transformation of the analog to digital photography are new discussion and theories about the nature of the media. While one group of contemporary theorists argues that this technical-technological change means nothing else but the death of photography as we know, the other one claim opposite. In this paper, I will try to pinpoint at two views and considerations on digital photography, of Martha Rosler and Fred Ritchin.
