The spread of film, television and new media has flooded our daily life with images, and visuality is becoming a dominant and often superficial and manipulative gate to the perception of the world. The study of visual culture can help improve orientation and the decoding of hidden meanings in communication. The Visual Culture Series caters to experts and readers interested in images, visuality, visual culture, photography, photojournalism and other forms of images and their role in the society. It presents contemporary works focusing on visual themes, original texts by Czech scholars as well as translations of important and contemporary foreign texts.
