Digital photography is the body snatcher of photography

James Bridle, Rorschmap, 2011

“… Matthew Knutzen, Geospatial Librarian at the New York Public Library, said to me, something like: “When maps become digital, they become something different, something new”.

That’s it; that’s all, spoken calmly among the stacks of the NYPL’s extraordinary centuries-old, thousands-strong paper map collection. But it’s something we rarely say, about anything digital. We’re so busy looking for ways to make digital books and maps usable in ways that we understand that we fail to do things with them that we don’t understand, or that are beyond our understanding.” From the artist’s notebook

"Like, u know. The word like is like, seen as something redundant, like the way female coded objects are like, u know, well, the colour pink or u wearing lipstick is seen as something unnecessary, but like, for some people it’s still like pretty enjoyable and it’s not like it’s hurting anyone else really.
And then like, the verb ‘to like’ something online is like, you know, when ur getting that ‘like’, you know what ur social value is in a money-driven society. But like at the same time it’s like based on something pretty positive and like actually some kind of support when like, u know u r liking someone’s selfie. U know, if we like think about ‘liking’ in relationship to selfie haters, well it might not be sellable to like hate on selfies but like, it’s pretty mean. But like yeah.”

“The scale at which images proliferate and the speed with which they travel has never been greater. Under these conditions images appear to be free, but they carry a price.” David Joselit
