Photography Discussion: The Value of Photographs
Thursday, June 5 | 7:00 pm
In this panel discussion, curator of photography Charlotte Cotton and artists Anthony Pearson, Paul Graham, and Soo Kim consider how the way we look at photographs is changing in light of the approaching obsolescence of analog photographic prints. Focusing on the work of each of the individual artists, the panel explores how this shift affects our understanding of the history of photography and the values that we assign to contemporary photographic prints.
