Album and Archive

Album and Archive | Photograph(ies) | Scoop.it

Photography is how we see ourselves – and it is how we project the ways in which we wish to be seen.

Mario Pires's curator insight, March 26, 2014 6:15 AM

"To call the family album an “archive” perhaps seems a little presumptuous, given that is generally an improvised collection of images from different places and times. But the strategies of the album and the archive also have a great deal in common, in the first place with regard how they are structured, but more importantly in terms of how we relate to (or make use of) the material that they contain. Photography is the ideal means for both endeavours, not just because it results in a kind of object that can be collected, but also because it is a technology that can actively shape how we understand a particular reality."

There’s been a lot of talk about selfies recently. The Oxford Dictionaries named “selfie” the word of the year for 2013, and “Museum Selfie Day,” last month, encouraged museumgoers to take creative selfies in front of art. But what distinguishes a selfie from an artist’s self-portrait?

The Susan Sontag Guide to Photography in the Age of Digital Culture

The Susan Sontag Guide to Photography in the Age of Digital Culture | Photograph(ies) | Scoop.it

Ever since its invention in 1839, the photographic image and its steady evolution have shaped our experience of reality—from chronicling our changing world and recording its diversity to helping us understand the science of emotion to anchored us to consumer culture. But despite the meteoric rise of photography from a niche curiosity to a mass medium over the past century and a half, there’s something ineffably yet indisputably different about visual culture in the digital age—something at once singular and deeply rooted at the essence of the photographic image itself.

Conscientious Extended | On Process | Photograph(ies) | Scoop.it

This photographs looks like an image made using the wet-plate process, but it’s merely a simulation if you will. I took this picture with my minipad, using the Hipstamatic Tintype package. It’s fairly safe to assume that tor a sizable part of photoland, a digital image that looks like a wet-plate image cannot be judged the same way as a an actual wet-plate one. In the following, I will try to explain why that is a pretty severe mistake.
