Online Photographic Thinking

Photography travels. Photographic images customarily appear on coffee mugs, t-shirts, and front pages and this capacity to roam continues to be one of the defining characteristics of our slippery medium. This essay addresses the context of the web for photography. It’s a new frontier that, from the standpoint of an independent practitioner, doesn’t seem to have fulfilled its potential, given photography’s phenomenal recent expansion as a contemporary art form as well as its over 150-year- old track record for multiple expansions. I want to ruminate on why that might be—on what conditions might have led to an underwhelming response by serious and independent photographers to the potential of the Internet.”

On the unbound book: academic publishing in the age of the infinite archive

“Developments in electronic publishing contain at least the potential for us to perceive the book as something that is not completely fixed, stable and unified, with definite limits and clear material edges, but as liquid and living, open to being continually and collaboratively written, edited, annotated, critiqued, updated, shared, supplemented, revised, re-ordered, reiterated and reimagined. So much so that, as some have indeed suggested, perhaps soon we will no longer call such things books at all, e- or otherwise.”

Photography is dead! Long live Photography

“No, photography is not dead, not by a long shot. All its vital signs are pretty damn good since it mediates our culture more pervasively and effectively than any other visual technology. As curator Linda Michael points out, for artists photography is “more alive than ever . . . as basic as drawing, a source of images, a social index, a voyeuristic device, a means of quick record”.

What’s Next

“For photography, maybe it’s about how photographers no longer have to self-censor or edit themselves because of analogue limitations, such as the number of frames on a roll of film or the cost of a sheet of film. The endlessness of digital capture is actually loosening photography up, and allowing it to be lots of different things, rather than simply a culmination or condensation of something.”

Welcome to the NEWFOTOSCAPES.

Terminology

Catalyst
The impetus for the NEWFOTOSCAPES encounters, Catalysts are the present questions that occupy each collaborator, having guided their current thinking, research and practice. Catalysts can be filtered by theme allowing the community to navigate through and across each encounter, encouraging intersections of contextual relevance.

Encounter
Pre-publication curated transcripts resulting from each discussion with the NEWFOTOSCAPES collaborators. Encounters can be explored directly or via Catalysts and Antennae.

Antennae
Where might the ideas and questions raised during the NEWFOTOSCAPES encounters lead us in terms of a future artistic and professional practice, what further questions might arise and how might we continue these conversations?
