a conference on the production of photographs

There’s to be a two-day conference at De Montfort University in June 2013 on ‘Workers and Consumers: The Photographic Industry 1860-1950’.  The details here.

The more I think about it, the more important looking at photos and asking how they got made – and then what’s happened to them since – is important.  Not just as a scholarly project, but also as a performed way of seeing photos.  I hope to come back to this in a future blog post.
