Photo Journal

Below is is a compilation of short notes and some thoughts I have for everything photography related. Though some are not fully documented and I am still always adding to my journal. I have a separate journal with artist names and things that a title tracker.

History of Lecture 2 Thoughts & questions

Capturing an image from a quarter of an hour to a fraction of a few seconds. This find took a gazillion times of trial and error.

I like how Meridel refers to current times in making linkages of how photography was a huge part of our lives and how the meaning of it is still … evolving … to different perspectives.

I am curious as to since the daguerreotype was found, how did it impact the art world – when did the transition begin?

I would like to think that history didn’t change – like how selfies capture moments – the underlying process of the everyday photographer remains the same. Just like when the daguerreotype was found; people experimented, there was a huge demand for portraits and people were obsessed with the potential – of capturing images. The motive for each person is different with regards of photography as a medium but the world is changing and influencing the use if this medium.

With technology and research – it became very, very, very accessible.

(equate progress with independence) (association)

Photography as a scientific process – did people separate this from art?

1839. industrial age

Geological time – the energy?

The excitement of innovation

More of the process that separates it as an art form/ everyday use.

Photography is just another medium – why the controversy?

Who were the patrons of photography back then and how did they afford it?
