"What is contemporary photography? Well, according to the RPS contempoary group:
"If you think that photography is a medium for communication and self-expression; is more expressive when images are grouped so that they interact with one another; and should be free from constraints or rules; you will find the Contemporary Group stimulating and exciting"
Now you know as much as I do. Contemporary photography is as much about what it isn't as what it is: it's about the story behind the image; how images together mean more than images on their own; It isn't about making images that will win competitions, or that look pretty, or "pleasing", or that people want to hang on their walls.
No, I'm none the wiser either.
... but this talk will, through audio visual presentations, digital images, print sets and one or two other rather unusual presentations, help you to see what I mean. Or not, probably."
