Martin Hand is Associate Professor in the department of sociology at Queens University, Canada. His previous works include Making Digital Cultures: Access, Interactivity and Authenticity.
"Hand proves to be a reliable guide in taking us throughwhat remains a rather bewildering landscape." European Journal of Communication "Photography is no longer a hobby or a discrete activity, and Martin Hand sets out in his lucid and engaging study just how it has become 'ubiquitous', modifying and making more visual a whole range of existing social practices." Tim Dant, Lancaster University "Hand's book sets contemporary photographic practices in the context of information technologies, changing cultural and economic forms, and a media-saturated society, and provides a lucid analysis of how these constitute "ubiquitous photography". Its combination of cultural theory, analytic insight, and ethnographic sensibility makes it indispensable reading for anyone seeking to understand contemporary visual culture." Anne Beaulieu, University of Groningen
