While the early hybrid forms between moving and unmoving image have, with increasing historical distance, come to be considered worthy of study, the growing presence of digitally mobilized photographic images in the present visual culture has so far hardly been taken seriously as an object of research – not only on the basis of its currency and its suspicious proximity to popular culture but also because its medial and thus academic classification is unclear. The matter-of-factness with which photo-, video- and computer-graphical recording and representation media are combined today, however, shows that the “expanded field of photography” (Baker) requires an expanded concept of “the photographic” between analog and digital, print and projection, still and moving. Taking the analog/digital debate as obsolete, the paper directly attacks the opposition of print and projection before exposing, with the Ken Burns Effect, a specific challenge to the still/moving divide.
