Globalisation is not a new phenomenon; intercontinental connections of business, finance, trade and informational flow have been put in place even before the European expansion in the sixteenth century and the overseas colonisation took off. They have increased at a vertiginous rate in the wake of industrialisation and the related transformations in the domains of telecommunications and teletransportations. In this process, the increasingly global and extraterritorial elites (the “tourists”) provide a stark contrast to the locally bound, disempowered people, who have to move out of necessity (the “nomads”). Both constitute the focus of this book which seeks to examine how experiences of spatial displacement are being represented and communicated by self-made photographs or films. [less ▲]

Amateur photographs and films are being increasingly used by television and documentary filmmakers to illustrate and authenticate their work. Artists pursue their own ways to enter into dialogue with personal images of memories. There is also an increasing interest in private images to be found among social scientists (cultural anthropologists, historians, media theorists) and also among psychotherapists. To bring these different ways of dealing with amateur images together, the Centre national de l'audiovisuel and the University of Luxembourg organised in 2008 an international colloquium entitled The Manipulation and Valorisation of Amateur Images. Thirteen researchers, artists and media specialists, among them Patricia Zimmermann and Heather Norris Nicholson, were invited to give a paper and present their theoretical framework, empirical analyses, ethical reflections and concrete creative usages in this book.
