"The Future is Past: Identity and Photography Through Time"

Alicia Chester, Kimber Chewning, and Jill Frank (P)

Saturday, March 07 - 11:00AM to 11:45AM
Galleria III&IV

Why is Instagram formatted to look like an old-school Polaroid? Why are selfies considered cliché? This panel explores the tensions of identity construction through photography, from the identity of photography itself, to photographic mediation of identity, to the daily construction of identity on social media. From analog to digital, self-portraiture has been a primary means of constructing and presenting identity. Chester, Chewning, and Frank briefly present three different perspectives on the mediation and circulation of self-representations, followed by a discussion moderated by Joyce Neimanas.
