Welcome! The purpose of the Page 291 blog is to provide accessible commentary on contemporary visual culture, with a special emphasis on photography. Page 291 will highlight established and emerging artists, discuss relevant books, museum shows, and gallery openings, and comment on other visual aspects of society as a whole.
Most “photo blogs” are either personal photo albums or technical lists that serve as reference points for aspiring photographers. The 291 blog is different—it will attempt to play the role of cultural middle-man, bridging the gap between the amateur’s inarticulate wonder at photographic beauty and the critic’s unreadable, post-modern jargon.
As it develops, some posts may be archived onto the blog’s parent site, www.page291.com. Please check the blog for regular updates, and feel free to leave feedback. Thank you for visiting!
