Maps and Legends: photos and texts

“The enemy of photography is the convention, the fixed rules of ‘how to do’.
The salvation of photography comes from the experiment.”
(Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, 1947)

Maps and Legends. When Photography Met the Web focus on the relations that photographic practice is establishing with the world of the Web: its culture, its language and its imagery. From animated.gifs to photos shot in virtual worlds; from the images of Google Street Views to snapshots that change in real time, with the data flows, and on to the camera that captures time instead of space.
