Immersive Imaging

@ VOL 7 ON AUG 28, 2014

Zak Niazi speaks about constant changing technology, and how cameras have more or less stayed the same. He speaks about new methods of immersing the viewer in the image, rather than just limiting our photographic media to a simple, two-dimensional rectangle. Zak believes in a future where we will be able to share our experiences, rather than just our snapshots.
