Finding The Face Of The Other In Photography – Obscura Festival, Georgetown

Finding The Face Of The Other In Photography – Obscura Festival, Georgetown, August 2018

This talk asks what is at the core of photography? What makes it unique and why do we always return to it? It posits that what makes photography unique is what we find in amateur photography and specifically the act of photography itself. We will see how the act of making an image puts us in relation to the other that we see in front of the lens. With amateur photography we find that our relationship with the subject has more significance than the image made and yet it is this relationship that fuels how we have come to understand fine art and journalistic photography.
