Photography is ubiquitous; it is omnipresent and used for multiple purposes throughout the world and throughout industries. How do artists differentiate their photographic works from the general field of images? Photographer and University of Chicago Professor Laura Letinsky considers this question for Chicago-based artists, addressing the historical and contemporary theoretical/philosophical issues as they relate to each artist’s practice. This lecture focuses this question alongside current exhibitions on display throughout Chicago.
