There was a time when I was constantly looking through Tina Barney’s Theater of Manners because I was also thinking about how to justifiably and unbiasedly photograph family life (She is grappling with it whether she wants to acknowledge it or not.) It’s been a couple years since I’ve thought about that series, so I welcomed the news that four decades worth of images by Tina Barney were on view at Paul Kasmin GalleryBetter than the show though, is that she now also has a website with each series’ gallery deep of images. This is a big upgrade from how I used to few her work back in 2009. Eitherway, looking through I had a few thoughts; Titles are important but can seriously detract too. How did Brian Williams get in there? and Is there anyone else out there making large-format portraits that feel this much like a snapshot?

permanent and ingrained


Family snapshots turned into photographic objects through embroidered pixellation… recently there has been an increase in this type of photo intervention but Diane Meyer’s process is getting at something greater than merely the loss of the physical image. She is marrying the past, the craft and the digital future into one plain of complex layer upon layer.

“I am interested in the failures of photography in preserving experience and personal history, as well as the means by which photographs transform history into nostalgic objects that obscure understandings of the past.” – Diane Meyer.

What is photography? Is it a print or an object, is it a jpeg on your screen or does it only exist if you print it out? Is it a snapshot on your phone, a slide projection, or the image you see in your mind before you click the shutter?  In short, is photography a thing, or a picture, or is it a way of seeing? – Zoe Leonard

 I travel, navigate, through virtual space and I look for things that will support an idea I have. I make screenshots or download images and crop them in specific ways for what I am looking for. I frame the virtual world the way I want to see it. This is what a photographer does, frames and edits the world in the way that she sees it. So, at one point, I decided not to make a distinction between my practice and traditional photographic practice.  – Penelope Umbrico from here.

To Taoism that which is absolutely still or absolutely perfect is absolutely dead, for without the possibility of growth and change there can be no Tao. In reality there is nothing in the universe which is completely perfect or completely still; – Alan Watts.
