Kim Beil – Good Pictures

Kim Beil joins FotoFika TODAY. In this talk, Kim Beil introduces her Fotofika assignment, “Good Pictures Break the Rules,” with a visual tour of aesthetic rules that have been overturned in photography since the 20th century. She argues that breaking the rules can be a radical act: a rejection of the stylistic status quo can also suggest new ways of seeing and being seen as photographers.
