Trash – Archiving the Poor Image

Illustrated essay describing the role of ‘poor images’ of both digital and analogue origin in artistic productions such as photobooks.

“…Image-creating technologies of the digital age do not accommodate the accident and variation that analogue processes are heir to. These have to be added afterwards by means of filters or digital controls. The aesthetic provided by these devices is a given – it arrives fully formed and in consequence is often of less interest to image makers for whom convenience is not necessarily a priority.”
