summary

Photographs taken using the current generation of mobile phones and digital cameras are created in a way that is radically different from the traditional principles of photography. Their nature is algorithmic: by pushing a button we set in motion a number of complicated computational operations, whose existence and function are beyond our comprehension. An increasingly smaller role is being played by the active human element, the importance of artificial intelligence is on the rise and visuality itself is beginning to take on a computational nature; photographic manipulations and their perception in photojournalism have entered a new era. Filip Láb describes this era with keen interest, a sense of technological detail as well as the ethos of the photographic work.
