LACP Exhibition Theme

This show Exploring our relationships with the past. It also considers how analog procedures and experimentations inform our digital, networked existence and continue to push photographic practice forward.

The heated discussions about the impact of AI on photographic technology, practice and copyright highlight the growing resurgence of analog photography during the past decade: Photography brands, once on the brink of bankruptcy were able to turn a new leaf.

New models of film cameras are rolling into the market, and a generation born into the online universe cannot wait to get to the darkroom. What captivates us in the singular photographic image? Can we consider contemporary questions about manipulation in the context of analog photo-making? What can analog photography teach us about the future and past of photography?
