Max Kozloff: As Luck Would Have It: The Element of Chance in Photography

Photography is the ideal medium for fishing out things, appearances, and events that don't make sense or otherwise defy reason. This lecture explores the havoc wreaked upon the notion of story in photography by writers sympathetic to the element of chance. Too bad that as an explanatory principle to explain what happens, chance explains nothing. This condition will be illustrated by various photos featuring the smiles of women.
