Photoviz: Visualizing Information Through Photography

Felton has a new book coming out called Photoviz that looks … amazing.

PhotoViz explores the intersection of photography, infographics, and data visualization. Combining cutting-edge technology and classic photographic techniques enables us to tell stories and visualize information more powerfully and compactly than ever: a full day of flights all at once, invisible Wi-Fi networks, global trade, intimate psychology, movement, time itself, and more.  The concept of PhotoViz invites us to simultaneously reinvent our collective reality and demystify our surroundings.

Within this mesmerizing photographic world, striking images reveal the power of tools ranging from long exposure and slit-scan photography to post-processing, collage, and metadata. PhotoViz is a source of inspiration and a crucial resource for designers and photographers alike.

Here’s the talk that goes with it:
