In particolare ci fa riflettere sul fatto che oggi i bambini vengono ripresi in video e fotografati continuamente, e gli scatti vengono postati su Facebook e Twitter e si chiede se e come questa generazione verrà in qualche modo formata, valorizzata, commossa o forse ferita dall’esposizione della propria immagine.
In the early days the movie camera was saved “for best” (special events and family celebrations), [now] it is increasingly used to record everyday activities, particularly when the subjects are babies or when children themselves are doing the recording.
…Exposure to such recordings has a profound effect on how we make sense of our own pasts. Photos and videos, watched and rewatched after the event, are absorbed seamlessly into the stories of our lives. From around two and a half, kids have a good understanding of how photographic representations work. They realise that an image represents a bit of reality and are beginning to understand that changes to the reality after the photo was taken will not somehow magically make their way into the representation.
Voi che ne pensate? Che atteggiamento avete nei confronti della pubblicazione di foto/video ecc.?
