Part two of the Directions in Contemporary Photography workshop is structured around looking at the institutions, galleries, publications, and blogs that collect and disseminate the world of pictures around us. In a space overstimulated by an over-abundance of images, participants will analyze trending topics, look at who's winning awards, look at the meteroic rise of photobooks in the age of digital printing, as well as analyze the role of the internet and its lasting effects on imagery.
