In the fourth episode in the Point season of Elements, I talk to Ebony Lamb about point of view and how it relates to her work as a photographer and song-writer. We use as starting point for this discussion Ebony’s portrait below.
Again, I am still working out what I mean by this. I’m interested in the vantage point that we tell our work from. I’ve always called this ‘Point of View’ but I’m slowly wondering about how this term privileges sight. So, in this season I’m interested in ways of breaking this idea a little but to see if I can get at something interesting.
Some of the things we talk about are:
Here is a link to Ebony’s photography website
Here is a link to Ebony’s music website
Here is a link to the work of Andris Apse
Here’s a link to Gregory Crewdson’s Sound and Vision Podcast
Here’s a link to some of Nan Goldin’s work
What is it to write a self-portrait? Think about ‘where you will place your camera’. And write from here.
