Street Phtography

An interesting article on The Guardian's website today about street photography and the problems experienced by photographers who face police harassment for working in public spaces. An organization called I'm A Photographer, Not A Terrorist, has been created to counter the repressive tendencies that arise from anti-terrorism laws and fears about pedophilia. There is a large amount of material on Flickr dedicated to street photography and a number of forthcoming publications dedicated to the practice. There's also some interesting stuff at AmericansuburbX.

There will be a seminar entitled "Urban Images: Re-imagining the City Through Moving Images" at the Academy of Art in Oslo from 9 - 11 September. The organizers are now calling for abstracts for short presentations. The Urban Images symposium focuses on the field of artistic film and video related to architecture and urban space. The main objective is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of artists and scholars in order to provide an opportunity for debate on the relationship between the development of the architectural imaginary through avant-garde movements and contemporary production in time-based media. The program is structured in four thematic sessions with specific focus on moving images’ influence on urban architecture, urban architecture relationship to avant-garde film, the city as a source for artistic film and video, and reflections on urban architecture in recent film and video art. 

Send abstracts by 1. May to Marit Paasche or Synne Bull.
