#collectingsocialphotography - nordisk projekt om digitalt socialt fotografi


Published on

Oplæg ved LFF vinterseminar 2016 #collectingsocialphotography – Nordisk digitalt indsamlingsprojekt Elisabeth Boogh (Stockholms Läns Museum), Kajsa Hartig (Nordiska Museet), Bente Jensen (Aalborg Stadsarkiv) og Anni Wallenius (Finnish Museum of Photography)

De præsenterer ”state of the art” i et nordisk projekt, der skal undersøge hvilke nye praksisser, der opstår, når fotografiet ophører at være et statisk og klart afgrænset udsagn, der hovedsageligt kan betragtes som videnskabelig dokumentation og nu mere er en del af en dialog eller en online samtale. Hvilke konsekvenser har denne ændring potentielt for indsamling og forståelse af fotografiet, når det på sin vis erstatter traditionelle analoge medier som dagbog og brevsamlinger. -se mere om projektet på:

  6. 6. 1. memory, narrative and identity 2. creating and maintaining relationships 3. self- representation 4. self-expression. Personal photography today is primarily pursued for four overlapping reasons:
  7. 7. ” Snapchat isn’t about capturing the traditional Kodak moment. It’s about communicating with the full range of human emotion – not just what appears to be pretty or perfect.”
  8. 8. ?
  9. 9. Photography isn’t anymore about a single image or photographic object. It is part of a chain of registered data. The digital photography of our time is momentary, and therefore there is a high risk it never gets to museum and archives collections. Another risk is lack of metadata. Few photographers, whether professional or amateur, supply their imagefiles with searchable keywords.
  11. 11. Bridging analogue and digital work practices
  12. 12. To describe and map the role of the photograph collections, current methods and workflows in museums and archives today,

  14. 14. To describe and map and the role of the collecting heritage organisations (as compared to other organisations/companies collecting and disseminating photographs) and how users perceive archives/museums.

  18. 18. Strategies for collection: • Collect in realtime • Cooperate with photographers • Use up to date technology • Collect in quantity as well as quality • Explore new motifs and way’s of using photography • Give advice to the photographers • Cooperate with researchers Foto: Elisabeth Boogh Foto: Malin Klasell
  19. 19. The main differences between analogue and digital photo: • Why people photograph. • How it’s used and… • …how it is disseminated.
  20. 20. The Finnish Museum of Photography is national special museum for photography, its task being to promote and foster Finnish photographic art and culture.
  21. 21. Collections policy: ”to collect good, representative examples of all photographic cultures” → instead of thematic or regional focus, our interest in photography lies in collecting and exhibiting different genres of photography, different uses of photography and phenomena related to photography
  22. 22. ”The Internet has fundamentally changed photography. Never in history have people created so many photographs to such vast and immediate audiences as today. Never before has the individual snapshot taken by ordinary men and women had such global political impacts. Photographs have become integral in all forms of our communication. Today, sharing pictures is as important as creating them.”
  23. 23. ”Although technological changes, such as digitalization, the Internet, smart phones, and metadata have changed the concept of photography, the needs and desires behind taking photos have remained surprisingly similar. We still use photographs to enhance our memories, to construct our identities, to find love, and to stay in touch with those close to us.”
