I am currently doing research for a new project called the History Of Photo. It is a look at, yes you guessed it, the history of photography.
This idea has been rattling around in my head for years now. I have been teaching the History Of Photography for over 10 years and I have always wanted to delve deeper into different genres of photography and explore how they have shaped contemporary photography.
At the project’s core will be an ongoing podcast on the history of photography. This serialized podcast will focus on different themes each season and explore the facts, fictions and myths of photography and how they have influenced contemporary photography. This will all be retold by yours truly in a storytelling narrative.
My timeline to launch the project, 1 year. However, I plan to bring you along for this new adventure, letting you know what I find out about podcasting and share some of my research and updates. I am so excited to get started and share this new adventure with you all!!
For the first season I have a few ideas I have been thinking about:
Photography, Who’s Your Daddy? - A look birth of photography through the lives of the fathers of photography.
Photography and New York City - A history of photography through the lives of some of the great photogs to live and work in one of the greatest cities fo the world.
Muybridge and Modernity - Exploring the ripple effects of Muybridge’s experiments in chronophotography.
Let me know in the comments which one you would like to listen to, thanks and stay tuned.
