GEORGE EASTMAN MUSEUM

A Matter of Memory: Photography as Object in the Digital Age

Foreword by Bruce Barnes. Text by Lisa Hostetler, William T. Green.

Featured image is reproduced from 'A Matter of Memory: Photography as Object in the Digital Age.'The majority of photographic images today are recorded and viewed digitally, rather than on film and paper. Amateurs, photojournalists and commercial photographers alike rarely produce material objects as the final step in their photographic process, making photographs in the form of physical objects increasingly scarce.
But what happens to personal and collective memories when photographic images are not instantly accessible on the face of physical objects? How is society’s relationship to memory changing as digital photographs become the norm?
A number of contemporary artists are making work that suggests the potential consequences of photography’s latest metamorphosis. Two main strategies emerge: some artists dig deep into photographic materials as though searching for the locus of memory, and others incorporate found photographs into their work as virtual talismans of recollection. Both highlight the presence of the photographic object and function as self-conscious meditations on photography’s ongoing reorganization of our mental and physical landscape.
A Matter of Memory features the work of more than 30 artists including Thomas Barrow, Matthew Brandt, Ellen Carey, John Chiara, Adam Fuss, Robert Heinecken, Leslie Hewitt, Kenneth Josephson, Laura Letinsky, Chris McCaw, Diane Meyer, Yola Monakhov Stockton, Vik Muniz, Floris Neusüss, Marlo Pascual, Matthew Porter, Taryn Simon, Michelle Stuart, Kunié Sugiura, Bertien van Manen, James Welling and Augusta Wood.

Lisa Hostetler is curator in charge of the Department of Photography at the George Eastman Museum. She has held previous positions as the McEvoy Family Curator of Photography at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and as Curator of Photographs at the Milwaukee Art Museum. She earned her PhD from Princeton University with a dissertation on photographer Louis Faurer while working at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She has curated numerous exhibitions, including Brian Ulrich: The Centurion (2015), David Levinthal: History (2015), Color Rush: American Color Photography from Stieglitz to Sherman (2013; catalogue co-author), Taryn Simon: Photographs and Texts (2011), Street Seen: The Psychological Gesture in American Photography (2010; catalogue author) and Saul Leiter: In Living Color (2006).

A compendium of uneditionable photographs, A Matter of Memory: Photography as Object in the Digital Age gathers work by 30 artists who consider what happens when images become 'disembodied,' distinct from the film or pieces of paper that once gave support to ephemeral moments.
