Our lives are defined by, and captured in, photographs and videos. With current technologies, every significant event in our personal and public life is recorded and can be instantly shared around the world with profound consequences. This lecture will trace the history of imaging technology over the past 1,000 years, including recent developments. Finally, we’ll speculate on what the future will bring.
