Images saturate our culture and daily lives. Today, the Carnegie Museum of Art in Oakland launches www.nowseethis.org, a website that explores the life cycle of an image, including creation, transmission, consumption, storage, loss and re-emergence.

The Hillman Photography Initiative goes live today at 10 a.m. with the website created by Bearded, a local company. The project has five curators and four components: "The Invisible Photograph," "The Sandbox: At Play With the Photobook," "This Picture" and "Orphaned Images."

Divya Rao Heffley manages the initiative. She began researching the state of photography and the field's dramatic changes in 2011 with a major grant from the William T. Hillman Foundation. The museum's staff has examined everything from fine art to computational photography.
