Digital Pictures: New Trends in Photography

The new capabilities of the medium present opportunity as well as some problems to the new generation of photographers who create in a digital world.

We will discuss the changes that have taken place in the medium and find out how photographers as well as those who must store, display and archive new electronic art are dealing with digital work. We are interested in how this new work is evaluated compared to traditional photography and what trends we see developing in the field.

Panelists include Andrew Davies, Ed Earle, Jonathan Lipkin, Sarah Silver and Oliver Wasow. The panel will be moderated by Ellen La Forge.
