#291: It’s All About The Torque

© Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison

This week, we discuss a recent article talking about “capitalist realism,” an idea that suggests that the work of Annie Leibovitz and Gregory Crewdson are two sides of the same coin in terms of the worlds they represent. Also, we weigh in on a photographer who decided to make an editorial decision on a photograph that didn’t go well. Plus, Fuji is being sued by Polaroid over Instax. Robert ParkeHarrison is our Photographer of the Week.

#290: That’s The Recipe For Me

This week, with the actual hardware making so many drastic changes and computational photography gaining more interest and capability, we discuss the potential future of photography, beginning with the question “what is a photograph?” Does that definition change depending on your entry point into the medium? Also, a reprint of a collaboration between Richard Avedon and James Baldwin inspires a discussion around how and why we critique art. Plus, is augmented reality the future or simply tomorrow’s 3d? Be sure to check the show notes for an article we will be discussing next week. Pierpaolo Ferrari is our Photographer of the Week.

This week, they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If you could recreate any single photograph, which one would it be and why? Does everything in a museum really “deserve” to be there or was Sturgeon right and 90% of everything is just crap? Plus, with modern cameras so dependent on software, should camera makers turn to the open source community? Virginia Thoren is our Photographer of the Week. Connect with us!

This week, when do great cameras (or any other tools for that matter) cease to be great? Many of us chase the latest and greatest, but even the older version was great once. Also, some thoughts on photos as objects, courtesy of Wim Wenders and his collection of thousands of Polaroids. Plus, managing expectations about what we put out into the world. Taryn Simon is our Photographer of the Week. As a teaser for next week, what defines a “cultural experience” for you?
