More than Photography

Listen carefully to the first part of Taryn Simon’s presentation. Then follow as she works through her thesis. There are some important things underlying her project that help us in understanding the nature and benefit of thinking through semiotics.

Symbols and meaning are important. I was certainly struck by the section where she described the photos of those convicted of crimes they did not commit in the very setting they were accused. As she described how our memory is often circumvented by images we cannot get out of our head.

The implications are many.
