Welcome BOP Conference 2020; Photography and the Tech Evolution

The Future of Photography is most exciting. Judging from the standpoint of where photography has come from in the last couple hundred years; from the point hole camera, to the steel plate camera past several generations unto full-frame electronic sensors of today, it has been an amazing journey and one can only but look towards what the future holds.

The variety of cameras currently available in the imaging world is unlike anything in all of history from smartphones packing cameras that can produce incredibly stunning imagery with details and professional cameras ranging from Micro 4/3 to APS-C sensors, drones, the 35mm Sensor commonly known as full frame sensors and medium format cameras, there’s a wide range for people to go out there, capture stunning images whilst also telling compelling visual stories but with variety comes the issue of ‘flooding, When there are too many speakers on a podium, its likened that almost no voice will be heard. Also the emergence of social media, platforms to share the art of photography but also giving access to millions of eyes, some with the not so best of intents.

In this current environment with so much is going on, it’s almost easy to get lost in all the technological advancements and forget what photography truly is at its core; A story telling tool. It’s with this goal in mind that the Business of Photography Conference 2020 is themed “Photography and the Tech Evolution”. The conference is aimed at navigating the complex techno-ecological system that photographers find themselves in the 21st century, help them best utilize the opportunities that these advancements are offering whilst still maintaining what photography is at its core; A means to tell our individual stories.

BOP CONFERENCE X  THE WHITESPACE
PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION

Everywhere you go in Nigeria, this is the common phrase of the time. A country struggling with its desires for the shiny flash and sleek lines of 21st-century modernity, glimpsed through Instagram and cable tv, juxtaposed with the reality ‘on the ground’ – limited or failing infrastructure and a physical environment totally frayed at the edges.
A city like Lagos has always striven to expand towards the new instead of regenerating the old. In its wake, we are left with hollowed out infrastructure, abandoned building entire industrial zones become eerie dilapidated ghost towns. Whatever happened to Tinapa?

We shape our narratives by first understanding our current and past states of mind, documenting our realities to inform the framework of our future dreams. So we can hopefully move from a ‘managed’ state ‘ to a state of ‘considered engagement’

This series asks photographers to document the realities of these spaces left behind, whose empty corridors and broken windows tell the real story of the things we aspire.

Theme: SHAPING THE NIGERIAN NARRATIVE
“Looking at the Development and neglect of industries across the Country”.

NOTE: All works are to be submitted no later 11 pm on April 15th with a short (max100 words) description and a body of work in a PDF format(max 5 photographs taken on digital or film camera).
SUBMIT TO: submission@businessof photography.net.
