The role of the photographer and the value of photography are in flux. Camera technology is now so cheap and pervasive that taking a photograph no longer holds an intrinsic value.
As part of our 20th anniversary celebrations, we’ve invited 20 photographers who have known Knowle West Media Centre through the years to create new work, reflecting on how photography has changed over the past two decades.
The works focus on people and place and mix technologies both new and old, from pin hole cameras and polaroids, to laser-cutters and CNC machines.
Each work explores where, when and how the photographer can construct value and offers insights into how the future of photography might unfold in the next 20 years.
