This week my colleague Dr Eve Forrest has been participating at the Helsinki Photomedia conference in Finland. Today Eve is presenting our co-authored paper Between exhibition and contemplation: considering everyday routines on Blipfoto in a session entitled “Non-professional photography: practices and power”.
My colleague Dr Eve Forrest and I have just had a paper accepted for Helsinki Photomedia 2014: Photographic powers. The conference takes place 26-28 March 2014 at Aalto University. Our paper will consider some of the ways in which two contrasting online spaces – Blipfoto and Flickr – are both constructed and explored by users, and how the “performance” of photography further extends into different forms of display online. An abstract of our paper is available on the IIDI web site.
