This live Seminar on Photoblogs from the Format international Photography Festival panel includes:
Chaired by Alfredo Cramerotti
Moderated by Louise Clements
Seminar will look at and beyond a list of the most interesting photoblogs - tackling some of these broad questions:
How are online photography galleries and curated art blogs changing the way we receive and view photography? What does it mean that newcomers from all over the globe can participate? Is it stimulating innovation, fresh ideas and talent or are we facing visual overload and global mediocrity. What does this broad access do to individual sensibility? And what of the role of digital curators - important filters or replicating the gallery system?
Also considering how / why photoblogs and various platforms like twitter and facebook have become multidimensional and can be used for different purposes / self-marketing for some, new form of curating for others, social network for others etc.
