The shift.

The digital age has ushered in a new age of photography, but the shift has more to do with behaviors and attitudes than technology. Photography directly corresponds to reality; post-photography doesn’t. Photography captures to remember; post-photography captures to define. Photographers tell stories about photos; post-photographers tell stories with photos. Together these changes indicate a marked shift in the mindset of the people behind the camera.
