As a malleable medium, photography fashions itself to the trends of digital culture. An instantaneous and endless supply of imagery is met with an ever-growing demand for visual stimulation. Has the abundance of the vernacular in photographic imagery via the cell-phone and other forms of proliferating technology been raised to the level of visual noise? Or, has it revealed the marginal as fundamental? Either way, the archive overflows. It becomes uncontrollable and a Barthesian madness ensues infinitely expanding all previous photographic boundaries, photography finds itself at a galactic precipice and seeks again to examine itself anew, searching for a kind of meta-photograph.
