From Instagram to LOL Cats to Tumblr, few things on the Internet are more tempting than a picture with a sense of humor or a vintage filter. With more content sharing platforms available than ever before, the ability to share, manipulate and copy images without permission or credit has nearly become status quo. How can traditional photography survive in an Internet world? How can paid professional photographers or content creators get the credit they deserve for their work? When does an Internet meme become bigger than copyright? With a blend of traditional photography experts and Internet enthusiasts, this panel will discuss the development of one photography meme – Texts from Hillary — and how the worlds of the State Department, Time Magazine and Tumblr collided. The panel will also discuss how the culture of filtered photos, re-blogging and beyond can change how we tell visual stories.
