images of images…

We thought long and hard about what photograph from our research project’s fieldwork would work best for the flyer for the exhibition currently running at the Building Centre in London.  This one, we thought: someone holding an printed visualisation would say something about the work of making these digital images material, and about the work that is done with them.

And then I found this: the cover of the first edition of Howard Becker’s classic book Art Worlds, published in 1982 by California University Press and as fresh today as it was then, in my opinion (though a second edition did come out in 2008).

I hope you’ve noticed the very artful angle I’ve place it at, to show that I am photographing it reflexively, of course.
