Sammanfattning

The focus in the paper is on the significance of place in visual mobile communication, in particular the use of camera phones in the mediation of place. The core notion of the paper is that by communicating a photograph from the mobile phone immediately after capturing the image, it is possible to ‘send the place’ and mediate the communicator’s presence. In this sense, the communication of camera phone photographs is innately a location-aware form of mobile technology use. In addition to a theoretically oriented analysis, the paper utilises results from a qualitative study focusing on the mobile photo sharing practices of a group of Finnish camera phone users.
