Photo Archives VIII. The Digital Photo Archive. Theories, Practices and Rhetoric
Photo Archives VIII. The Digital Photo Archive. Theories, Practices and Rhetoric – May 5-7, 2022 - come join us!
Building on the Photo Archives conference series, this gathering aims to examine and reflect on the practices and ideologies of digital photo archives within the framework of the recent history of photography. It seeks to challenge the idea of documentary values connected to photography and archives at a time when visual imagery is completely malleable; it aims at revisiting past narratives, speculating on future uses as well as enhancing best practices. Issues include the economies and ecologies of digital photo archives, the politics of taxonomies and metadata, the multiplication of voices, as well as questions of scale and user experience.
