The Transit Lounge of Photography




A symposium on the ever-changing states of photography from the invention of the medium to the digital present.

From the magic lantern to Instagram and ‘connected photography’ this symposium unpacks a little history of the transmission of images. The Transit Lounge of Photography examines where the medium of record has been and asks: how is it travelling.

The Transit Lounge of Photography is all about making connections with photographic images and reading their vapor trails, presenting a series of projections on images and ideas in the share-house of photography.

Join us for an afternoon looking through photographs and at photography ending in a live magic lantern show in the evening.

Coordinated by Patrick Pound (Deakin Motion Lab Centre for Creative Arts Research) and the CCP.
