“What is a Photograph?” by Joel Morgovsky

What most people would consider a rather simple question actually requires a rather complex answer. For example, Jonathan Green writes that “our experience of a photograph is not unlike our experience of the world, but it is not our experience of the world, it is our experience of the photograph.” “What is a Photograph” will challenge you to think again about what photographs are and how they work. Using quotes from writers in many fields plus selected photographs as talking points, this session drives the issue of pictures being paradoxical things that one writer calls “impossible.” And yet we make them all the time and in great quantity without ever taking on the riddle.
