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.”

“…’Education as Platform’ is the idea of exploring some of the experiences we’ve had with massive open online learning, and exploring some of the criticisms that we’ve experienced, some of the criticisms that we’ve seen, and trying to understand what elements of the design are working and what elements of the design are not working, and to use this understanding to try to advance our perspective on the way online learning is proceeding and should proceed.”
