Continuing William Mitchell's investigations of how we understand, reason about, and use images, The Reconfigured Eye provides the first systematic, critical analysis of the digital imaging revolution. "An intelligent and readable approach to the digitization of images.... A useful overview of a critical subject."-- New York Times Book Review Enhanced? Or faked? Today the very idea of photographic veracity is being radically challenged by the emerging technology of digital image manipulation and synthesis: photographs can now be altered at will in ways that are virtually undetectable, and photorealistic synthesized images are becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish from actual photographs. Continuing William Mitchell's investigations of how we understand, reason about, and use images, The Reconfigured Eye provides the first systematic, critical analysis of the digital imaging revolution. It describes the technology of the digital image in detail and looks closely at how it is changing the way we explore ideas, at its aesthetic potential, and at the ethical questions it raises.… (altro)

The technical differences between film photography and digital two-dimensional representations challenge a lot of our assumptions about the status of photographic images as truth, even though photos too have always been manipulable and manipulated. Very interesting insights, including the point that a photograph captures both an instant and an instance, whereas many of these new images (electron microscope images, images of the universe from radio telescopes, etc.) are actually made over time and could more readily be said to represent a type rather than a specific individual.

This is often a difficult book, but I believe that it will come to be recognized as one of the seminal texts in the subject of the trustability of photographic images. I'm not aware of any other book that so methodically discusses the technology relevant to the manipulation and outright fabrification of digital images. The author also gives a great deal of attention to the cultural and ethical issues associated with digital imagery, drawing on centuries of evolving practices for visual representation. Reading the book in 2008, it is all the more interesting that this was written in 1992, when Photoshop was young and digital manipulation was only practical on high-end professional workstations. 16 years later, the author's contention that "the growing circulation of the new graphic currency that digital imaging technology mints is relentlessly destabilizing the old photographic orthodoxy, denaturing the established rules of graphic communication, and disrupting the familiar practices of image production and exchange.
