What is conceptual photography?


General Photography

I finally found the time to watch the series of web documentaries about conceptual photography, produced by Source. To be honest, I was a bit apprehensive before watching it, because I have a love-hate relationship with this type of photography (assuming, of course, there is such a thing - at the beginning of the third installment, Oliver Chanarin dismisses the idea outright): I like (and occasionally love) conceptual photography, but I absolutely hate a lot of the talk generated around it (the kind of talk where you might as well call the thing “academic photography” - you’ll find some in the series). That aside, I find the idea of creating presentations around photography like these ones very interesting, and I hope there will be more.
