The Art of Seeing: mobile apps are more than tools
I've just watched Richard Koci Hernandez's multimedia piece on the impact of mobile camera technology on seeing. Hernandez introduces viewers to the debate on how many people think mobile phone apps subvert personal vision. In the end, however, what matters is that these new tools afford greater engagement in the experience of seeing.
Between 1987 and 1996 I documented displaced and repatriated communities in Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Chiapas, Mexico. This album represents some of the images made in more than a dozen trip to Latin America in the 1980s and 1990s.
