Comment on Emily Jacir and the New York Times by missnesbitt

Sun, 04 Dec 2011 01:52:08 +0000

nice analysis, thank you. I know this review happened a long time ago now, but I am revisiting it for a University essay. I feel like the context of this review is massively important. Like, maybe it is true that given the number of reviews the NY times does they might be let off for a few bad ones, but really, this is a review of the winner of an award which gives out $100,000 and a solo show at the Guggenheim, it's no small potatoes! The fact that this is how the NY times decided to represent it seems pretty noteworthy on the institutional decision making process and also with respect to the impact on western audiences who need as much encouragement as possible in the way of reducing cultural prejudice towards the middle east. I also wonder if the fact that we aren't more moved by the writing is an indication of our relationship to these issues -- like, if this was a review of one of the canonical western greats, would we be more outraged? Anyway, bla bla bla. Basically, thank you for taking the time to think about and write about these important issues!

Hi, I am writing my dissertation about some of the questions you posed in the beginning of this post. Mainly, what effect if any does the New Topographics exhibition have on my generation of photographers? If you have written another blog post about this topic I would really appreciate it if you could just email me a link or something. If not a brief personal opinion would be much appreciated too. Thanks a lot! Charlotte

Comment on Revisiting the Valley of the Shadow of Death by Miles Edwards

Man casts a shadow when he stands in the light. Death casts a shadow when standing in silence. Seek not the shadow, for it is an illusion. Seek instead the light and the silence because it is the reality of death and man.

Fantastic article. I know I am late on this. To end on Tillim, a photographer I believe is one of the crafts' best thinkers was a treat.
