I’ve done just as i thought i would and completely started going off track, whilst Ben Roberts work is very interesting in terms of how social networking helps photographers, it has nothing to do with representation. So i’ve decided to think of a specific title to stop me going off track.
How we visually represent ourselves in the social networking world
This makes the essay more theory based, i may be able to find some photographers work to back up my ideas, but most of the supporting work will be essays and theories. The images will have to screen grabs and observations I have made. So to refocus my research instead of spending time looking for artists work I will be reading essays and looking through hundreds of profiles on facebook, twitter, and other social networking sites.
