History and Future

Contemporary Issues In Photography was the topic of the club meeting yesterday night. Speaker was Joel Smith, curator of photography at the Princeton University Art Museum. I was pulled back in time looking at a variety of famous work and unconventional techniques. A thing I found interesting was a question during the Q&A session afterwards. It went something like this:

Q: Where do you think photography is going in times where people take millions of random pictures every day even with their cell phones; sending them around the world in seconds?
A: I guess people asked themselves similar questions when the first Leica came out. I don't know.
