Transcript of Photography and Fantasy: One Hour Photo - By Jake Lange

"Photography and Fantasy: One Hour Photo"

PHO102 - Photography and Visual Culture “An important postmodern trend that still holds strong: Using visual cultural practice to engage in cultural critique about visual culture, rather than turning to words as if words were a more intelligent or more trustworthy form.”
(Sturken and Cartwright, 2009: 323) “Personal pictures are made specifically to portray the individual or the group to which they belong as they would wish to be seen and as they have chosen to show themselves to one another... Twentieth-century family photography, with its resolute insistence on the creation of happy memories, has determinedly reflected this mood... a home-based family idyll.”
(in Wells, 2004: 117, 144) Cindy Sherman
