Towards photography without man?
Nonhuman photography, 2017
Joanna Zylinska is professor of new media and communication at Goldsmiths, University of London. Straddling practice and theory, her work probes the ethical, epistemological and political issues raised by new media
She has written many books, including Bioethics in the Age of New Media (2009), Life after New Media: Mediation as a Vital Process (2012) and Minimal Ethics for the Anthropocene (2014). Zylinska discusses her latest work, Nonhuman Photography, published in 2017. She ponders the future of photography in the context of a visual culture characterised by the development of new ways to record, view and circulate images ruled by the logic of technology and algorithms. That perspective — photography dissociated from all human intervention — is linked to Zylinska’s photo project, Active Perceptual Systems.
