Normal Programming Will Resume Shortly
The medium is the message seems like a timeworn cliche, yet in recent years it has flipped and become one of the most germane of statements. In his poetic and elliptical ways, McLuhan foresaw a fluid melting world of texting, email, YouTube, Google, smartphones and reality TV. Most of the content of any of these media is pure crap. But what’s spooking us all is the inevitable message of...

A one hour documentary on Joel Meyerowitz from the 80’s, excellent indeed!
It's a Bookish Kind of Day?
Books are good!
THE EXPERIENCE OF PAGING through a picture book is, on the other hand, bound and focused by the physicality of the book. You have an instant apprehension of the number of pages, you know the scope of the thing (it isn’t infinite), and you can develop a relationship with it as a companionable, tactile object—something designed to be touched, paged through, taken to bed. And in the case of a...

The International Center For Fictional Photography →
Published beginning on May 5, 2011. Most of the photographs found online were shot digitally and uploaded to the Internet without any consideration of printing them in a physical form. Their material condition is not an issue. What we’re concerned with is photographs whose materiality is at stake, for which an online presentation is disruptive, and therefore worth examining.
Photography/TOS x google+paranoia= DUUH!
So; there seems to be lots of hand wringing ‘again’ over google+ and the TOS for photographers. I just chuckle about it all. I do however have my own pretty straightforward ideas about the these issues, and they stem from over 25 years of making pictures, and having the luxury of not having to need to receive a cent for them. Well, I have sold the odd print here and there, but I am...
Last week, I spent some quality time in Castlemaine as part of my attempt at this year’s SoFoMoBo, project. I took a book in case I needed to stop and shelter from inclement weather, or sit in a coffee shop. The book I took, is titled, ‘Dialogue with Photography’ and features interviews with a bunch of mostly American Modernist photographers. I sat down in Saff’s coffee...

I Wish I was in San Fran
Right now! Especially given that Richard Misrach is one of my favourite photographers.“Face of our Time presents the work of five photographers who share an interest in making pictures that capture what the world looks like. They observe the sometimes-volatile civil and political transformations facing society, recording history as it unfolds over time. Goldberg gives voice to the...
Google + FTW?
I have yet to receive an invite, but am waiting eagerly for it, this feature alone has me wanting “switch”.“Instantly upload photos and videos to the cloud, but decide later how to share them Google+ mobile apps (coming soon), will have an auto-upload feature so that any photo or video you take on your phone using the app (rather than the phone’s built-in camera) will...
My current project has stagnated somewhat. The light here is good, but after a brief overseas holiday, I’m uninspired. I have covered very little ground yet and my last roll of film that I got back from the lab was very low on keepers! While on holidays I bought and read, ‘Publish Your Photography Book’ by Darius D. Himes & Mary Virginia Swanson. This project was simply...
