A 10 Minute symposium presentation talking about the Craft within photography, how it hasn't been lost, only forgotten as we transitioned into the digital landscape within Photography.

The Photographic Craft in The Digital Era Speaker : Alex Edwards

“We see cameras transitioning into what they were bound to become: networked lenses .” –Craig Mod

“While there appears to be nothing that photography can’t devour , whatever can’t be photographed becomes less important .” –Susan Sontag

“Today , it turns out, it’s whatever can’t be networked that becomes less important.” –Craig Mod

500 million photographs shared daily with complete strangers – Data curtsy of Mary Meeker, KCPB’s 2013 Internet Trends

“While more Photographs are being taken, they’re also becoming more ephemeral .” –April Klicrease

“When craft is involved with the making of something, be it a pot or a piece of writing, it usually means that the process of how and why it has been put together has been well considered .” –Laurie Britton-Newell

“Regardless of process or variance in tools, craft is defined by intention and attention , by caring about the outcome and in relation, caring about the end- user . This is why craft matters, why the notion of digital craft has emerged.” –Guy Horton

“Art has ‘intrinsic ’ value, meaning that art is valuable in itself, and independent of what people enjoy , or want, or what is good for them.” –Stephen Guest

“Craft has never been more important than now, as an antidote to mass production and as a practice in which the very time is takes to produce an object becomes part of its value in a world that often moves –Caroline Roux too fast.'”

“The rise of the mp3 has been coupled with a resurgence in vinyl …”

“…Nothing has contributed more to our collective appreciation for being logged off and technologically disconnected than the very technologies of connection .” –Nathan Jurgenson

“When I started in Photography I was using my hands to create photography, and it seemed overnight Digital came and all of that was gone…”

“… Everyone around me has the same cameras, the same signature.” –Ian Ruhter
