I read, with my usual enjoyment, one of Jorge Colberg’s latest articles entitled “An Addendum: Welcome to the faith-based community!”. What struck me about this article was Colberg’s distinction about people wanting to believe in the proposed reality of a photograph, such as family portraits or individual ones, as an acceptance of the better me or better us we see in the photograph as opposed to the more flawed one we see every day in the mirror.

After having read with interest Joerg Colberg’s stimulating article about the conservatism we see in most contemporary photography and the trend for smart phone users to imitate old methods and effects with the click of a finger, I’d like to add a couple of reflections which I feel are inherent to understanding the first part of the question, linked to the conservatism in contemporary fine art photography, not only to explore Colberg’s stimulating point of view but also as an open analysis of what is happening in photography and the […]
