Unsuspending Disbelief: What Photographs “Mean”

Check again later for room assignments.

Is what the photograph pictures the same as what the photograph means? The photograph’s ubiquity naturalizes its ways of describing such that what is “pictured” is regularly taken as evidentiary. However, what the photograph actually means is in fact rarely self-evident and always relative. Through a variety of perspectives we will examine the photograph’s lamination of content and subject that will be the subject for a symposium, a practicum-seminar class, and the focus for an exhibition at the Logan Center, The Faculty of Belief, co-curated by Letinsky and Monika Szewczyk.
