Corinne Vionnet

snap+share: transmitting photographs from mail art to social networks makes a case that the dissemination of photographs is just as important as their creation. It’s an exhibition about the socialization of photographs, various forms of sharing throughout the medium’s history, and the conceptual issues that arise from the immediacy of online sharing.

With her impressionist views of popular cultural landmarks, Corinne Vionnet presents a collective vision of the Tourist. These images from her series, Photo Opportunities, are composed of hundreds of snapshots found on the web, and are carefully combined to represent communal ideas of well-known tourist destinations.
