SPE’s 52nd National Conference in New Orleans, “Atmospheres: Climate, Equity and Community in Photography” As the world's most prolific and democratic visual medium, photography is all around us. It informs and persuades, delights and sometimes horrifies us. Photographs have always communicated the realities of the world, but have also been about helping the photographer communicate their personal interests about a place, a situation, or their fellow human beings. This conference will bring together ideas about the complex atmospheres of climate, equity, and community and will examine how photographers, teachers and students can examine, embrace, editorialize and understand them.
For photographic educators, artists and scholars, the conference programming will:
• Discuss what diversity means within the framework of photography
• Examine how artists have expressed themselves on the topics of race, culture, ethnicity, religion, class, gender, sexual preference, and age
• Identify how these issues are being discussed in the art world and in the classroom today
• Investigate the vocabulary required to discuss diversity in the arts today
