Abstract

This article aims to analyze some photographs produced by Cia de Fotos for the Caixa de Sapato (Shoe Box) project linked to Flickr, in the light of discussions about contemporary digital photography and the sharing of feelings and personal narratives in the virtual world. We will reflect on the relationship between home photography, photographic aesthetics and intimacy, because they are images made by professionals in their intimate day-to-day family life, with a strong aesthetic weight. Starting with authors like Flusser, Bourdieu, Chalfen, Soulages, Lister and Murray, we will analyze the aesthetic standards of these images, which are between amateur and professional, private and shared.
