This Sunday at Shades of the Departed, a new weekend column called Appealing Subjects debuts. And it’s written by me!
In Appealing Subjects, we’ll explore the strange and wonderful relationship between photography and law. We’ll consider issues such as Photography and the Constitution, Crime by Camera, Photos as Punishment, and Photography Goes to War. Naturally, we’ll also stay updated on copyright, privacy, the right of publicity, and the status of orphan works. We’ll discuss whether photography is art or journalism and why it matters.
And we’ll dress it all up with appropriate photographs, vintage and modern.
I hope you’ll join at Appealing Subjects, coming this Sunday, November 23!
