Paul Paper (ed.), Too Good to Be Photographed

Too Good To Be Photographed is a project which explores the various sides of photographic failure. On the one hand, it delves into an inability of photography to accurately replicate vision. On the other, there is a larger cultural issue at focus. It relates to our societal investment in photography to truly depict what we see and endow it with an attribute of 'truthfulness'.

The project deals with a special discrepancy: that moment when photography breaks. When the camera collapses as a mechanical-eye, and when the medium fails as a cultural replicator of our looking. In other words, the project presents photography’s B-sides, failures, non-successes, defeats. Which ultimately leads to questions about our desires of what photography should be and should be able to do.

Essays by Roksana Filipowska, Rye Holmboe, Paulius Petraitis, and Jaclyn Wright.
