Richard Billingham.

Guest Lecturer: Richard Billingham. 

Possibly the most unfulfilled and longest two hours of my life.

Thank god someone noticed Richard Billingham, he certainly got lucky in that department as far as I’m concerned.

Billingham’s work is incredibly interesting, inspiring, important, controversial and heavily contextualised, it continues to be celebrated but he couldn’t have done it alone.

I was so excited to hear Billingham talk about his own work, perhaps I raised the bar too high but unfortunately the lecture was so mind-numbingly tedious. It was almost as if he had no idea how others have interpreted his work, the apathetic towards his own work was difficult to comprehend.

The way he explained his photographic process seemed to have no regard to contemporary art or photography whatsoever and gave the impression he was just a celebrated snapshot photographer from someone else’s interpretation of his work.

Maybe he was having a bad day, I’m unsure but how he became a part time lecturer is beyond me. The lecture was elongated, mundane and most disappointingly uninspiring. However I continue to admire his work, but I hold no hope for his upcoming projects.

An evaluation on my review interrogation. (Look to The Suburbs).

20/1/14

Subsequent to our group review session we came to the conclusion that Mark Durden’s review ‘Look to the Suburbs’ in Source Magazine, for Garry Winogrand’s book was a success. The lack of personal response and opinion left us to make up our own judgement about the publication. After reading the review we agreed that the content was informative and well structured enough to inform us of the interesting elements in this book. The review certainly sparked an interest for me regarding the work of Garry Winogrand who I was unfamiliar with beforehand, and it has certainly made me want to read the book. For me this makes a successful review in promoting a product, wether that be the intention or not. Not all reviews intend to promote or advertise a product but in this case it fits that criteria in a subtle and professional manner.

Starting from scratch.

Considering the Past – http://lenscratch.com/2014/01/looking-backwards/

20/1/14

During our first lecture for the unit we looked at various blogs such as:

http://www.lenscratch.com/

http://hotshoeblog.wordpress.com/

http://blog.magnumphotos.com/

http://littlebrownmushroom.wordpress.com/

http://elizabethavedon.blogspot.com/

This was a great starting point for starting my blog from scratch using word press. WordPress is a completely new web hosting service to me, but as I can see that high end professionals are using it I am enthusiastic to conquer the features of the blog host throughout this unit.

Looking through the recommended blogs has influenced my choices on how to present my blog as well as what to include within the content.

Lenscratch was my favourite of the blogs I’ve looked at so far. After reading the most recent post on the homepage I am thoroughly impressed with the content and layout, it’s easy to use and clear to read whilst looking professional yet not overwhelming. The blog posts continuously start with an eye catching image to draw your attention, once you are hooked the text to accompany does not fail to disappoint.

The homepage post ‘Considering The Past’ is an article which allows me to appreciate why it’s in the top 10 rated photography blogs by Source Review, Rangefinder, and Instyle magazine. It helped me to justify questions I’ve been asking myself for a long time now, for example:

Do photographs improve with time?

A psychologist might suggest we are busy projecting value upon the past so that our present, soon past, will hopefully have a like value one day.. 

It is a level playing field to stand along side work that has the patina of age? 

I constantly think about leaving my dignity behind and selling out to become a commercial photographer, as it’s a competitive industry at the present and I question wether I can afford to wait such time to potentially become widely recognised for achievements.

I can not agree more with the statement below and can only hope one day that my own images can be appreciated in this way by myself, my friends, family and the rest of the world.

“I do believe that almost any work that lasts, that was/is appreciated enough to be kept intact, will simply get better with time. It may be a romantic delusion but I feel the average snapshot of today will somehow manage to make us cry when we are creaky with age and juggling gauzy memories.” 

Also, I could not agree more with the next statement and again only hope that my efforts will become recognised long before I am dead and gone. I guess you could call it hope, paranoia or aspiration.

What distinguishes the good work from the celebrated work often has as much to do with synergy and being in the right time and place as it does anything else.”

Look to The Suburbs.

Book Review by Mark Durden

Image

6/1/14 – Danielle Pugh

During the first session of our visual exploration unit as a group we generated a series of questions in order to interrogate a review and begin to understand the purpose and intentions of the writing.

1) What is the intention of the review?

The intention of the review is not in fact to sell or promote the book. Durden is informative about the content of the book with plenty of quotations and references to other people’s opinions and interpretations. Towards the end of the review it becomes more opinionated as he interrogates and interprets, questions and other interpretations within the content of the book.

2) What was your interpretation of the content & photographic outputs through the review? Did the writing give a good understanding of the show or books in question?

The review is very informative about the photographic content, it informs the reader about the social and political eras and other elements which affected and influence the meaning behind the images outcomes.

3) What is the review critically focused on and what type of photography is being explored?

The type of photography being explored is street photography, depicting the social issues and attitudes during the 60’s within the portrayal of the American lifestyle. The review seems to inform us mainly about the biography of photographer Garry Winogrand but also interpretations on the narratives of his work affected by sociology and democracy.

4) Is the reviewer’s opinion the most important part of the review or is it the factual and descriptive elements of the review that are most important?

I think an honest, opinionated review is important if it’s from someone who is authentic, established and well respected. However this review is less about the opinions of the writer and more factual, informative and descriptive about the biography of the photographer and their work within the book. There are elements of opinion which justifies the authenticity of the writer as well as where it has been published. I think that the factual elements are probably most important though, as it will not influence your own opinion and enables you to give the book a chance yourself.

5) How was the review researched?

Throughout the review the main sources suggested was John Szarkowski as well as the book itself, the contributors, exhibitions, central essays for the book, discussions, biographical details and quotes.

6) Why have they written it in this way?

This provides an intellectual and informative source for someone to find out reliable information or opinions on the book before reading it, combining summary and synthesis provides us with an informative and well written response to the source we are looking up. I think that the reason they have strayed away from too much opinion is to avoid influencing your own opinion on the book, as it may be different to theirs.

7) What were their influences towards the work: That is how wide are the references used in the text?

The influence of the review seems to be from wide variety of legitimate sources including the writer himself. I think this makes for a good review as you can see that it’s not just one person’s opinions and that it’s factual and informative.

8) Does the intention of the work/book/exhibition come across?

The intention is clearly stated within the first paragraph by saying the book endorses Szarkowski’s judgement  as well as seeking to rectify the dearth of research and understanding the authors feel Winogrand’s work has met with in the decades since his death.

9) What was your interpretation of the book/exhibition from the review?

I preferred the review to be more factual as it leaves room for me to develop my own opinion and interpretation of the quotes and content from the book. If it was purely someone else’s opinion there is always a chance it may be different to my own and within interpretations of photographs there is never one right or wrong answer. However I always find it interesting to listen to what the photographer has to say, so since it seems to be more biography based I’d be inclined to read it.

10) Did you understand the issues covered/intended to come across from the review?

The review is well written and long enough to explain the intentions and issues relating to the book and it’s content. Although, not long enough and so is just a short source of information regarding the chosen literature.

Review –

What is the intention of the article/exhibition?

The article breaks down the choices curators make when putting together an exhibition and the issue it tackles. The article begins to start a debate on their contextual issues of the exhibition influenced by the left-wing values from 1789-2012. Asking the widely interpreted question ‘Can art affect everyone?’ the title alone engages anyone who is remotely interested in art to understand Tate’s fundamental mission and ethos of achieving this as a subtext to the exhibition.

What effect did the curators have in the outcome of the exhibition? 

Their strategies to display the work has been carefully thought out in a way which will reflect history, narrative and interest but also allow the viewer to engage through a form of distantiation in order to reflect on their own question’s to the works.

How important/controversial is the show?

This is the first exhibition to examine the procedures and reception of art, which has been influenced by left-wing values. Although not completely factual the interpretations are somewhat historical influence in themselves. It raises awareness of the importance of social and political influence on the movement of art, weather it is intentional or unconscious at the time or not creates controversial criticism.

Is the article/exhibition open to interpretation?

The article title is a question and in the first paragraph it states Francesco Manacorda ‘invites you to think differently about the idea of ‘art for all’ and share your view.’ The exhibition intention is to encourage viewers to abandon conventional readings of an image and rethink how art can be influenced by a role in society. This article is perfect for someone who is curious about the exhibition and is looking to question it and get involved in innovative responses. The Tate have sparked all sorts of questions related to the show and encourage feedback via social networking in the closing paragraph.

Is it informative and authentic?

A gallery founded in 1897 Tate is the most well established art galleries in the UK. The writer of the article, Francesco Manacorda is an Italian art expert and a newly appointed artistic director of the Tate Liverpool. I have learnt it is important to question sources online. The web gives the ability for anyone to publish their thoughts and opinions. I am interested in reading well-written and authentic articles by people who simply know what they are talking about.

The article is not a review of the exhibition so it is less informative about the work but it’s an extension on the thoughts related to the concepts around the show. There aren’t many facts and little information about the show but the article mainly strives to ask questions of the reader/viewer in order to spark curiosity in a debate.
