Opening on Tuesday 9 November and symposium on Thursday 11 November 2021

The Automated Photography project investigates the mutability of the digital photographic image, both in terms of physical materiality and virtual forms, by examining the automated image capture systems that are omnipresent in the contemporary visual world.

Tuesday 9 November – 7 – 9 pm: exhibition opening

The research project builds on the work of the Augmented Photography initiative (2016-17) and forms part of the photography master’s programme at École cantonale d’art de Lausanne (ECAL). Automated Photography casts a critical gaze on a paradigm shift in the photography process, photographic capture (in the strict sense, and appropriation), and on the automated and computational practices that reflect a conception of space less tied to the equivalence between the human eye and the machine.

An exhibition, book presentation, and symposium will be held at Espace Commines during Paris Photo 2021, and works will be exhibited in the window of the Centre culturel suisse bookshop.
