Artist and photographer John Phillips gives one of his popular talks about cutting edge technology and experiments in fine art photography.
John Phillips says ' Early adopters of technologies are frequently constrained by the types of images created by the technologies they supersede. As McLuhan succinctly proposed “We look at the present through a rear-view mirror. We march backwards into the future.”The problem we all face when using new media is realising the possibilities that they offer. Vanitas playfully explores this issue through images that are unique to digital technologies, which simultaneously reference the past.'
