The exhibition concept explores how photographs based on representations of our world can exist both as documentary and as fine art, and how the meaning of the work can be transformed in each environment. Each of the artists represented here produce powerful work on important global themes. The emphasis on the meaning of this work can vary if the work appears in a commercial art gallery, non-commercial art gallery, book, museum, or on the internet.

This panel will discuss the issues of form and content in documentary photography.   Following the panel will be a reception for the Razor’s Edge exhibition, as well as for The Art of Documentary exhibit in the mezzanine level of powerHouse Arena. This exhibit is work from a call for entries from SocialDocumentary.net.”

Panel Discussion and Book Signing: Photographs Not Taken

Sunday, April 22, 2012 2:00-4:00 pm

“Join ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1 for a panel discussion and book signing for Photographs Not Taken, a fascinating collection of photographers’ essays about failed attempts to make a picture. Editor Will Steacy asked more than 60 photographers to abandon the conventional tools needed to make a photograph and instead make one using words. In each essay, the photograph has been stripped down to its barest and most primitive form: the idea behind it. Panelists include contributors Nina Berman, Gregory Halpern, Amy Stein, and editor Will Steacy, and the event is moderated by Daylight Publishing cofounders Taj Forer and Michael Itkoff.”

Panel Discussion with Kathy Ryan, New York Times Magazine Photographs
Thursday, November 17, 2011 at 7:00 pm
Admission: Free

“Longtime photo editor Kathy Ryan will discuss her new book, The New York Times Magazine Photographs (Aperture, 2011) at Barnes and Noble with photographers Damon Winter and Taryn Simon.

The book reflects upon and interrogates the nature of both photography and print magazines, at this pivotal moment in their history and evolution. It presents some of the finest commissioned photographs worldwide of various types, including reportage, portraiture, style, conceptual photography, and photo illustration. Also addressed are issues of documentary photography in relation to more conceptual photography; the efficacy of storytelling; and what makes an image evidentiary, objective, subjective, truthful, or a tool for advocacy; as well as discussion of whether these matters are currently moot, or more critical than ever. As such, The New York Times Magazine Photographs aims to serve as a springboard for a rigorous, necessary, and revitalized examination of photography as presented within a modern journalistic context.”
