    Symposium: Photography & place

    Forwarded message re exhibition and symposium in Sydney:

    SUBJECT AND OBJECT IN 21ST CENTURY PHOTOGRAPHY
    Symposium: Photography and place

    What do subject and object mean (or what can they mean) in photography in the 21st century?

    Photography is a constantly mutating medium, reacting to (and sometime precipitating) changes in art, society, politics and technology. In the 21st century, photographic practice has come into increasingly close contact with other art forms and, through the virtual environment, an increasingly diverse audience.

    However, few new theoretical frameworks for considering contemporary photography have arisen to push photographic theory beyond the seminal work of writers such as Barthes, Benjamin, Sontag and Krauss. This symposium, the first of a new annual series of symposia dedicated to photography, explores new ways of thinking about the medium in the 21st century.

    Have new frameworks for considering contemporary photography arisen? If so, what are they?

    The drinks sound good. I'd probably sit out the vectors. I sure become emotional when a print just won't come right.

    Sixty five bucks buys a fair amount of film.

    Thanks anyway, Philip, I need to stick to the practice rather than the academic theories
