New Work: Flags

Filed under: Americana,Collector Prints,Flags,Work in Progress — mas @ 1:48 pm

Here is a new piece from a very old project. Flags started in the Fall of 2001 when I noticed all the additional US flags flying on and stuck to everything. With new perspective, I am revisiting that project.

Visual Literacy: Intentional Fallacy

In looking for parallels between photography and other types of art, I find a photo to be most equivalent to a poem. The elements of the photo would be the words in the poem. It’s a simple comparison that brings up a complicated issue; why are readers of poems responsible for their own understanding of the work, while photographers are responsible for providing viewers with captions as well as statements of intent?

If photos were inherently more abstract than poems, there might be a reason for helping the viewer along, but since the written word is many levels further removed from reality than a photo, the question is still on the table.

In addition, the matter of intention is completely set on its ear. With poetry, readers, especially critics commit the intentional fallacy of trying to psychoanalyze the artist through his work, while with photography the curators and editors want the artist to psychoanalyze herself through her work. In either case, the intentional fallacy is being committed.
