In Defense Of the Precious Object | THE AGNOSTIC PRINT

In Defense Of the Precious Object | THE AGNOSTIC PRINT | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

This is a pluralistic and global world we’re apart of, with many avenues available for communicating and showing work and that is increasing, not decreasing. I see totally opposite approaches to using photography existing at the same time, at the same place, and I can appreciate all of it as valid, interesting, significant, and in a way inevitable. I try to appreciate work on its own terms if I can.
