Technologies developed in Newcastle University that could transform photojournalism are being demonstrated at a symposium of industry leaders in New York.
Four Corners provides context to digital photographs and is being developed at Open Lab, part of Newcastle University’s world-leading School of Computing Science. The project is a collaboration between Open Lab, the World Press Photo Foundation, in Amsterdam, and the International Centre for Photography, New York.
Four Corners allows the photographer to display the photograph’s context. With it the reader can investigate the before and after frames, the backstory, technical and copyright information and links to even more. All of this is accessed by rolling over or swiping through the four corners of the picture.
