Linda Alterwitz‘s philosophy addresses the constant challenge to keep a balance between the two sides of the brain: the logical and the creative. This duality is apparent throughout the body of her work, starting with her photographic equipment. Alterwitz uses both digital cameras and toy cameras. The high-tech digital cameras produce clear, factual images that are believable and acceptable in our right-brained world. In contrast, images shot on film by the low-tech, simple workings of plastic cameras capture a spontaneous altered world. Alterwitz’s inspiration, the inner workings of the human body and her external surrounding environment, plays with the dance of the two sides of the brain as well as the contradiction of fear and reassurance. Past personal struggles with medical issues were tempered by fond, childhood memories of playing in the sand dunes and forests of Gary, Indiana where Alterwitz grew up. It is this dichotomy that gives her work a comforting sense of familiarity while simultaneously creating tension.”


March 2nd & 3rd, NYC: “The Photographic Universe: A Conference”

SYMPOSIUM
The Photographic Universe: A Conference
Wednesday & Thursday, March 2 & 3, 2011
Parsons The New School for Design
Theresa Lang Community and Student Center
55 West 13th Street, 2nd floor
New York City
Admission: Free

From the about page:
“This two-day symposium brings together a range of leading photographers, scientists, theoreticians, historians, and philosophers from Parsons as well as other institutions,  to reflect and discuss photography at a pivotal moment in its history.

The field of photography is constantly changing. What constitutes a ‘photographer’ or a ‘photograph’ has always been redefined by technological innovations, never more so than during the last two decades of the emerging digital revolution and the Internet. Quite possibly, photography is now at a similar place to where it was during its invention ‹ a time when its cultural significance quickly grew due to fast and innovative technological development. The Photographic Universe: A Conference reflects on this current moment, with the persuasive digitalization of the medium and its speedy permeation into contemporary life. What is the importance of photography as a medium and a discipline? Prominent thinkers and practitioners discuss their roles in the expanding photographic field, evaluate its increasingly blurry relationship between art and life, and speculate on how photographic images will continue to change the way we see our world.”
