PhotoQ interviewed nine photographers on how they respond to the tension between lowering income in the profession, and exploding interest in photography (more museums, galleries, magazines, web, phones, tablets). They were participating in the Day of Photography (in Dutch: Dag van de Fotografie) at the Amsterdam venue of Pakhuis De Zwijger on October 21st, 2011, as organised by the agency Hollandse Hoogte. More than 600 people visited interviews, presentations, discussions and other events.
Watch and listen to Peter Van Agtmael, Peter Stigter, Newsha Tavakolian, Inge van Iersel, Michel Szulc Krzyzanowski, Hellen van Meene, Ed Kashi, Joost van den Broek and Donald Weber.
All 9 photographers still think positive, feel positive, and point out the quality of (their) work. But will it be enough!? Future will tell.
Everybody is a photographer now...so... Photography (as we know it) Is Dead?! R.I.P.
