Studium / Punctum

Selected photographs and thoughts on the aesthetics of photography, cinema, music and the way in which they may overlap.

New Blog

So I’ve decided on a game plan for this Tumblr madness. 


This blog will no longer feature my own work, but will consist of photographs from others and writings on photography, cinema, music.
I think it’s healthier to leave a space for my images to speak for themselves.
For my new photo-only blog, I will be using: http://theviewfinds.tumblr.com/
Please follow me there, if you feel so inclined.
Best,
Ian
Photography: not to identify and catalogue, but to palpate, in a moment of time, a broader meaning and resonance through indices of reality.  As Bazin states, photography is the only medium to derive an advantage from the absence of the artist’s hand in the formation of this image. It is a intrinsically collaborative practice: the photographer and reality.
