Since the growth of social media, human communication has become much more visual.
This book presents a scholarly analysis of the images people post on a regular basis to
Facebook. By including hundreds of examples, readers can see for themselves the
differences between postings from a village north of London, and those from a small town
in Trinidad. Why do women respond so differently to becoming a mother in England from
the way they do in Trinidad? How are values such as carnival and suburbia expressed
visually?

Based on an examination of over 20,000 images, the authors argue that phenomena such
as selfies and memes must be analysed in their local context. The book aims to highlight
the importance of visual images today in patrolling and controlling the moral values of
populations, and explores the changing role of photography from that of recording and
representation, to that of communication, where an image not only documents an
experience but also enhances it, making the moment itself more exciting.
