2017 saw the rise of the “no-context screenshot” from TV shows

  • No-context screenshots from TV shows have always been around. “But this year, “ says Kathryn VanArendonk, “it feels like they busted out of that particular niche and spread across the broader social-media landscape, where they’ve developed a distinct flavor. The no-context screenshot is no longer just intended for fans of a show, who will love an image precisely for its context. Now, the no-context screenshot has become a deliberate act of yanking a particular moment out from its original framework.”
