Presenter: Nick Shepard
Saturday, October 21 - 9:30AM to 9:55AM
In my imagemaker talk, I will explore the ways that the smartphone camera has forced us to modify the way we make work as photographers, understand contemporary imagery as critics, experience images as image consumers, and teach in the classroom. The seemingly frivolous smartphone increasingly challenges our expectations of what constitutes a "good" image, how our students engage with photographic images, and whether or not to categorize our smartphone images as "serious" work. I will discuss how my work as a photographer has been deeply affected by digital, handheld, ways of seeing, how the contemporary discourse around photography has begun to address smartphones as a mode of production and consumption, and ways I have brought these topics into the classroom.
