What's Happening to the Photographic Record?

What’s Happening to the Photographic Record?
Thursday, March 22nd
6:30pm-8pm
Free

We are taking more photos than any other time in history, but fewer photos are being printed than ever before. What does this mean for future generations who have no shoebox of photos to go through or no photo album telling the story of the past? Does it matter? And what do we do with all these digital images anyway? Join in this lively discussion of the fate of the photographic record in the 21st Century. Whether you are a photographer or a casual phone “snapshooter”, a parent or a historian join us as we explore the future of saving our stories through images. This discussion will be led by Richard Buswell, Kurt Keller, and Zach Begler.
