Finding Photography

the New Museum

Thu Jan, 13 2011, 7PM

Organized and moderated by Matt Keegan, featuring Roe Etheridge, Tim Barber, Mary Manning and Laurel Ptak. This conversation with notable photographers and founders of websites, such as Tiny Vices, I Heart Photograph and Unchanging Windows, will explore how the web not only affects the discovery of new photography, but also its distribution, interpretation and creation. With an emphasis on images and short text publishing encouraged by popular platforms like Tumblr, does photography lose depth? Does the continual circulation and re-presentation of photographs affect the work, itself? Is photography more resilient to change because we live in an image saturated culture? Panelists will present their projects, and discuss these questions, and more through audience Q&A.
