Visualized relationships

Taking and sending or uploading pictures has become a natural everyday routine for many people. In recent years, this ubiquity of visual communication and photo sharing have been critically discussed. However, the actual contexts and meanings of pictures in social relationships have not been examined adequately, yet. Against this background, the project Visualize relationships - function and problems, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), investigates the role of everyday visual communication in romantic partnerships and in close friend relationships in Switzerland.
