Firstly Constellation Cafe just made it to 100,000 hits and about 1,450 followers! Super excited about that! Thank you for all your support and feedback about the blog to keep it running for more than 5 years now.
I’ve not been posting any personal work on the blog recently and I’m trying to change that now. In my mind I’ve always been hoping that the blog becomes more of a centre of discussion rather than me shamelessly promoting myself. Still, just to keep you updated, here is a picture from the recent trip outside the city.
Secondly, Constellation Cafe is now going to be featuring academic papers on photography, starting with Coco Chen’s paper which discusses the political and civil repercussions of Rita Leistner’s “Prisoners of Balad”.
I’ve been reading more papers like these and its just so fascinating to look at how images don’t exist independently but in fact share a relationship with the audience even before they are seen by them.
