Nathan Jurgenson

He also works as a sociologist at Snap Inc.

His first book, The Social Photo: On Photography and Social Media, published by Verso, maps the ways in which the rapid production and circulation of images enabled by new digital platforms fundamentally alters our experience of the world.
