CONTEMPHOTO ’15 Conference aims at achieving a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective on urban issues, identity in the form of frozen images. Multiple roles of photography are going to be explored in relation to urban psychology, daily life and self expression of the individual in urban landscapes as a document, survey, archive, journalism, advertisement, joy and hobby. The relationship between visual history and individual throughout the last two centuries will constitute a basis for the discussion during the event. Exploring the role of how photography shapes issues of identity, place and citizenship within the city; how it documents urban otherness (that of homelessness, or of tourism); how it archives urban memory; and how it documents the celebrated and tragic variety of daily life (such as Selfie) and how it contains historical facts are the main objectives of the interdisciplinary conference of CONTEMPHOTO ’15.
The full papers are going to be available online in DAKAM’s digital library and to be published in the proceedings book with an ISBN number before the conference. The book will be sent to be reviewed for inclusion in the “Thomson and Reuters Web of Science’s Conference Proceedings Citation Index” (CPCI) and Google Scholars.
