  1. Feb. 2020 - Andrew Fisher: On the Scales of the Photographic

This talk introduces Andrew Fisher's new research project at FAMU,which investigates the many different and contested meanings the term scale takes on in the contemporary photographic context. The talk will explore the central questions asked in this research and focus on photographic examples. It will address the question: how and why questions of scale are crucial for an understanding of contemporary photographic images and the world they help to form.

He is founding editor of the peer-reviewed journal Philosophy of Photography (2010-present). Between 2008 and 2019, he was a Lecturer in the Department of Visual Culture at Goldsmiths, University of London.
