Christine Rosen, author of “The Image Culture,” predicts a dreary future for America when she expresses her concerns about the modern fixation on the image and the long-term dangers of visual overexposure. So far, we have read several other authors who analyze the image’s impact on current discussions such as the politics of war imagery, gender representation in the media, and the psychology of the Instagram obsessed American public as a whole.
