The Week On EyeEm: Volume 34

By Loren Lazic - 3 min read

Our weekly round-up of outstanding content uploaded onto EyeEm, each volume of The Week on EyeEm is unique - echoing certain details, social narratives, and creative techniques shaping our world. This week we are bringing you a thought-provoking curation and commentary from our editor, Loren Lazic.

Visualise an old hard drive of photographs, dug out from the dust. Archaeological artefacts, in hundreds years to come. Sure, we may leave the planet, but pixels never die.

How would you like to be remembered?

Today, there are 7.7 billion (and counting) other people in the world, all striving to make their mark.

The lens gives us that chance.

Four corners and a frame to say:

This is who I am. This is what I think. This is how I feel.

I hope you like what you find, future historians.

“Today everything exists to end in a photograph.”

– Susan Sontag
