If there are diverse kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing place, then we need to learn to value the different ways each of us sees a single place that is significant, but differently so, for each perspective.

urban landscape exhibition « Previous | |Next »
December 10, 2012

The Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado in the US has ongoing juried exhibitions of fine art photography by artists from around the world. One of these is the Urban Landscape with fifty three artists from six countries being included in the exhibition. Most of the artists are from the US.

I am not sure if this is the Thom O'Connor --I doubt it. The Center gives no links to the photographer's websites. This is subtle and elegant image. There is a quietness here amidst the constant visual noise that occurs in the urban spaces of a global city; a noise that includes the collapse of the analog photographic industry.

This is a noise of destruction in which once powerful companies such as Kodak, Polaroid, Ilford and Agfa spiralled into perpetual decline. This was the destruction or abandonment of factories that produced photographic paper or film in a technology driven and quickly shifting economy that saw no place for ‘old’ technologies or its workers.

Unfortunately, the Centre gives no indication of what technology was used to make the photographs in the exhibition. We are just presented the printed image.
