Photography as an adventure. Lecture by Olga Mikhalchuk
On February, 26, 2021 a science webinar by Olga Mikhalchuk on the history and theory of photography was held in the Gogol House lecture space, designed to introduce the art of photography to a wide audience.
Cinema has the Lumiere brothers, but who invented photography? We can see photos in newspapers and galleries, so what is photography — document or art? Now everyone is a photographer. How do you know whether the picture is good or bad?
At Olga Mikhalchuk’s webinar, we’ll figure out why everything is filmed — but the debate around the subject does not subside. An exciting journey awaits us through 10 centuries of scientific and creative research, thanks to which the puzzle of the photoprocess was formed in 1839. We will find out why multimedia technologies were used back in the 1st century AD, how the appearance of photography changed the course of history, and why in moments of danger a person remembers the best shots of his life.
