Synopsis
Who owns the image(s) of the world? We take more photographs in a single day than we did in the entire twentieth century. Our world transforms itself into its own image. It would be illegal if we were to show you everything we see around us. Because every single image is owned by someone.
Copyright-owners of objects, buildings, trademarks and even landscapes claim money for the depiction of their property. The real moneymaker is the wealth of pictures of us all. Who do the pictures of ourselves and of our world belong to?
