Photomediations: An Open Reader is an open, wiki-based part the online project Photomediations: An Open Book, led by Professor Joanna Zylinska. An experiment in open and hybrid publishing – as well as a celebration of the book as a living object – the project arises out of Europeana Space, which is funded by the European Union's ICT Policy Support Programme under GA n° 621037.

Photomediations: An Open Reader features academic, curatorial and mainstream open access texts about the dynamic relationship between photography and other media. The Reader is free for everyone to access. But that's not all: the open wiki format allows different communities of users (lecturers, students, curators, artists, independent learners) to add to, re-edit and re-version the material included in this Reader, after registering on this site.

The Reader also has a 'frozen' version, in the shape of an open access academic textbook which contains a curated selection of essays – some (but not all) of which are listed below. It was published by Open Humanities Press in January 2016.
