On 6 May 2018, I presented my photographic work at the Eleusis Photography Club in Eleusis. See description and details below:
One of the age old struggles of photography is to free itself from the notion that it is merely a recording mechanism. Today photography is widely accepted as an artistic medium and exhibited in galleries and museums around the world. Photography is still used as a recording tool, however, and involves a process of creative decisions, which require a methodological approach in order to produce a reliable document. So what is the creative process behind a photographic document and what turns a photographic document into a cultural object in itself?
Photographer Jeff Vanderpool will explore this issue at his talk for the Photography Club of Eleusis. Using examples from the history of the medium and his own practice as an archaeological and heritage photographer, he will discuss heritage photography, where record becomes art and art becomes record.
