Thanks to Ame for finally prodding me to upload the slides for this talk. I gave it at the Mobile Persuasion conference at Stanford a few months ago, but school and wedding preparations got in the way of blogging or uploading it. The gist: self-presentation and social communication practices have changed around the world after the influx of digital photography devices - especially camera phones. Mixed with photosharing communities like Flickr, this makes photography ever more mobile, crossing social groups, national borders, and linguistic boundaries. But this new mobility of images has multiple meanings, especially for countries like the United Arab Emirates that are debating how far the globalization of culture should go.
