If Photography is Dead…

Posted by on Tuesday July 26, 2011 | Fun

Why are there still so many boring panel discussions and blog articles asking if photography is dead?

Joerg Colberg, creator of the photography blog Conscientious, confronts this question head on in a new YouTube video. His solution: We admit photography is over. “I think it was good while it lasted,” Colberg deadpans for the camera.

Of course this leaves some issues unresolved. Like, what should Colberg do with all his photography books? And what else can we discuss in seminars and panels? The death of Facebook?

Colberg’s declaration of the death of photography has been met with good cheer. As one commenter on Colberg’s video says, “Now that that question is over, we can go out and take pictures.”
