What is Photography?

‘What is_?’ is an information programme comprising talks, information booklets and web resources. The purpose of this programme is to introduce key concepts and themes in contemporary art to the general public. Series 1 comprises seven topics supported by a talk, booklet and resource material available to download from IMMA’s website. An additional series of talks and booklets focusing on the ‘Materials & Methodologies’ of modern and contemporary art is being developed to complement Series 1 and to provide supplementary information to IMMA’s exhibitions programme.

‘What is Photography?’ is the first in the series. It provides an overview of photography and its role as medium and mode of documentation in contemporary arts practice. This is accompanied by an essay by Fiona Loughnane, Art Historian and Lecturer, titled ‘Image of Reality / Image not Reality: What is Photography?’. The talk is supported by an information leaflet which includes summary information about the topic, an essay and supplementary resource material including bibliography, resources and a glossary of terms.
