Art Photography Today

[an uncharted territory]

Angela Svoronou


Lecture lasting approximately 1 hour, with parallel projection of images. There will be a short break and then there will be a workshop for a limited number of participants (up to 10 people) where the photographic projects of the participants will be presented and discussed. The duration of the workshop will be approximately 2 to 2 and a half hours.



Photography today is everywhere; produced in various modes that may or may not include the use of a photographic camera, circulated via networks that would challenge Daedalus himself, it changes forms as swiftly as a chameleon. To wander into the uncharted territory of what art photography is today can be a challenge, both tough and exciting. This talk will most likely provide answers to some of your questions, at the risk of creating a lot more of them.
