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”.

Welcome to the NEWFOTOSCAPES.


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.

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