I'm a freelance writer available for commission. Please be in touch (jmcolberg at gmail.com) if you are interested in working with me. Below, you can find a small sample of my writing.
CPhMag.com: Since 2002, I have been blogging about contemporary photography. The blog's current iteration can be accessed by clicking on this picture. There are weekly updates every Monday.
Photography’s Neoliberal Realism is an indispensable contribution to photography theory at a time when digitalisation continues to have a significant effect on the status of photography as a ‘discrete medium’, demanding ever higher levels of visual literacy." - Burlington Contemporary
For VII Insider, I wrote about the interplay of photography on social media and photojournalism in the context of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
For L Fritz, I wrote about Poland's Archive of Public Protests.
I wrote one of the main essays for Sjoerd Knibbeler's "In Elements", a catalogue at the occasion of a 2021 exhibition at Museum der Westküste.
For FOAM Magazine 56, I wrote about how technological and corporate constraints (incl. the heavy handed censorship on Instagram) affect contemporary artists.
