Lawrence Alloway’s Spatial Utopia: Contemporary Photography as ‘Horizontal Description’

2011

Abstract

The mobility of art was a concept central to British critic Lawrence Alloway’s understanding of the role of visual imagery in contemporary life. Once photography became established as an art form, the definition of that mobility expanded significantly. The current high visibility of the medium is an opportunity to re-examine the diverse cultural contexts of visual signs and their users.
