Subject: student responses to your editorials

Dear Pedro

I would like to let you know that my class of second year students are due to respond to some of your Zonezero editorials in the next few days. In fact, their assignment is due on Monday next. This is part of a larger assignment that requires of each students to complete a related set of tasks - set out for them on So - hopefully they will be thoughtful and reasonably informed comments, although these are fairly young students and beginners in this field. The thrust of the course is to place contemporary debate about digital images within a longer history of photography, as is evident from the course website.

They would obviously be thrilled to have a reply from you in the next couple of weeks. They have been told to write fairly short but well formulated and carefully considered responses that reflect their wider reading, and that may provide a URL to webpages that present their own (beginners!) work in photoshop experimenting with the possibilities of altering photographs, on which they are also required to comment.

The course has already asked them to think about what it means to read an image, the ways in which 'pre-digital' photography involved framing and a range of other decisions by photographers, and presenting them with contrasting arguments re the potential or problematic of digital imagery for photojournalism and social documentary. I showed them examples of concious politically motivated editing out of people from photographs in 1930s Russia (The Commissar Vanishes - stalinist Russia)and they have readings about similar USA photo manipulations.

We also considered the playfulness of some Indian popular photography which disregards conventional notions of realism for studio photos, applies ink and paint to photo's in a avariety of ways and wedding collage-type pictures and brings home the extent to which a range of 'manipulations' s predate photoshop. They really enjoyed looking at the photos from Truth and Fictions, especially as they were also busy with Photoshop workshops and learning various techniques of how to combine different photos etc.

After this assignment, their larger research assignment starts and hopefully they'll be finding out and writing interesting things about local (South African) image alteration past and present and about photo's on the net.

warm regards,

Subject: de cd juarez

Sr Meyer.

En la actualidad me encuentro sando un taller sobre foto digital en la Universidad Autono de Cd. Juarez, materia que en la actualidad se mentiene como una de tantas optativas que aparecen y desaparecen del panorama academico de esta intitucion.

Debo deciros que en lo que va del curso, el portal de zonezero -articulos, la misma galeria, los editoriales, etc. se han constituido en un punto de referencia obligado para mi y para los alumnos que se inscribieron en el taller. Entre otras cosas por que ahi hemos hallado el espejo en el cual observar los alcances, las limitaciones, los aciertos y los errores que pueden hallarse en cuanto se trabaja con una imagen digital. Ya que si bien la alteracion digital de las imagenes se halla a la vuelta de la esquina mayormente en cuanto a la foto comercial se refiere, hacia falta ese punto de referencia en donde la imagen digital pudiera ser apreciada a otros niveles, tal vez artisticos, tal vez que sirvan para el analisis y la discusion academica.

El asunto es que nos preguntabamos si podriamos enviarle algunos de los trabajos, no con el fin de que sean exhibidos en las galerias -amen de que el curso aun no concluye- sino para que pudiera ofrecernos algun comentario u observacion y tener asi digamos el diagnostico de una voz autorizada en la materia.

Me despido no sin antes felicitarle por ese gran portal para la foto digital que es zonezero.

Subject: From Brazil
Dear Pedro,

I was introduced to ZoneZero by my photography master - Marcelo Greco - in Brazil and, since then, I can not log out from ZZ.

I have found many many interesting things at ZZ and I am using it as reference in our local blog (where we share our work, thoughts and learning with Marcelo).

From portfolios to Gallery, not forgetting your articles that make us reflect about photography and about life.

The "The poetry of an image" touched me specially once I am studying Bresson and the Zen Archer and your points of view made me open my mind even further.

Just pasted it in our blog so we discuss it.

Keep up with the bright work. Anything needed from Brazil, let me know,

Subject: Zonezero as our course "text book"

Dear Pedro, I am glad to read that you are recovering and back to filling Zonezero with all of the thoughtful and amusing insights those of us who read it expect to find there. I teach at Kutztown University, in rural Pennsylvania. Last semester on my suggestion, Prof. Cheryl Agulnick brought your work to our campus, much to the delight of my photography students. We had wonderful discussions about the work and you kindly replied to their questions, which made them feel important and connected to the world of art, in ways it is sometimes hard to feel out here, living as we do, among the cornfields.

Since their experience with your work was so positive, and since I always enjoy what I find on your site, I've decided to use Zonezero as the official "textbook" for my advanced photo class. Each semester, I usually have a mini-seminar in the large studio class, where we read a book, look at some images, think and talk a bit. We've used a German/English catalog, "Conceptual Photography" one semester; Robert Coles book, "Doing Documentary Work;" "The Body and the Lens;" and several others. Most of the students enjoy it, and it surely helps move them beyond the myth of the artist as mute, naif, visionary.

Because this is a state institution, many of the students have trouble reading and writing, making theory quite a stretch for them. But I want them to encounter ideas!! So I decided your website would an excellent source of ideas and images, and would help nudge people along toward digital image-making. (I am working very hard to move us out of the 19th century and into the 21st. But there is not much money and my colleagues are scared that what they do will become irrelevant, or that students will not longer enroll in their classes. It has been an uphill battle the past four years, but we are finally making some headway. The first Digital Photography class in Fine Art was offered last term.) Now I have students in the Photo Studio who are beginning to think about these issues. I am looking forward to exploring Zonezero as a teaching tool. Although I have plenty of ideas about how to approach this, I wonder if you care to throw in your two cents about how to use Zonezero as a tool in a photo class.

Best wishes for your continued recovery, Leigh Kane

Soy fotografa y  profesora de tres cursos de fotografia en la Facultad de Ciencias y Artes de la Comunicacion de la Universidad Catolica del Peru (en Lima):

-Fotografia Periodistica
-Fotografia Documental

Mi formacion es de Comunicadora Social. He trabajado en cine, fotografia y la docencia.

8 años en el Grupo Chaski (un colectivo de cine ), 3 años en Tafos (Talleres de Fotografia Social). Hasta el 2001 enseñe fotografia en la facultad de Comunicaciones de la Univesidad de Lima. Desde 1998 en la Universidad Catolica. No soy muy vieja pero ya tengo mis años (naci  en el 56)

Siempre visito su pagina y es de lectura obligada para mis alumnos. Es mas, es parte de la bibliografia en los silabos de mis cursos.

Es muy interesante, variada, agil, facil de navegar y sobre todo con version en español.

Aqui en el Peru hay poca bibliografia fotografica (sobre todo en el tema periodistico y documental) y esa es una de las razones por la cual encuentro Zonzero como FUNDAMENTAL.

Un saludo desde Lima

Good afternoon Mr. Meyer:

I am currently taking a Culture, Technology and Art class which is offered at Santa Rosa Junior College located in Northern California. The class is being taught by whom I believe you know, Ms. Judith Thorn. Ms. Thorn has introduced some of your work to us, i.e., your website, and your c.d., "Truth & Fiction." I have taken the opportunity to visit your website and find your work incredible. It is a website that I could easily spend hours exploring. I also found "Truth & Fiction" to be equally impressive. I appreciate your intention of using your art to 'stir up our spirit, emotion, political and social consciousness.

Subject: Registration

Seeing as how I've been a regular visitor to the ZoneZero site for the past couple of years , I think it's time to register. The impetus to do so has come from your 200220022002 project. It got me thinking again about the aspect of the global community. How a specific focal point, be it a theme, a belief or a joint passion, brings unrelated and unconnected people together for a moment in time or a to a point in space.

The power of the web, though by no means unique in this respect, has contributed greatly to the possibilities inherent in the global community spirit.

The 2002,2002,2002 project which you initiated, is a prime example. It uses the unifying aspect of time, a specific moment in history, the unifying aspect of a common passion, photography, and the unifying aspect of the web.

As such its power and importance is in its very existence, quite irrespective of the quality of image displayed (many of which are beautiful and thought provoking).

It is also very interesting to notice and analyze the different types of images and themes which reflect on the societies in which they were taken. As an Israeli I noticed immediately that both I and the other Israeli photographer who participated (so far), chose to photograph the news on the television (even though we focused on shots separated by a moment or so).

News and current events are so central to our lives that most of us watch or listen to the news at least several times a day, especially in times like these.

As a lecturer in Multimedia and Digital Photography at the Bezalel Academy of Arts & Design, Jerusalem, I follow your site closely. It is on the top of my list of recommended photography sites for my students and serves an important function in the perpetuation of the love for the craft and its potential.

It would be great if you could initiate or at least support some global projects for students of photography over the world. Points for global comparison and discussion. If this sound acceptable, I for one would be happy to contribute and help.

Hola Perdro Meyer:

Permítame primero felicitarlo por el desarrollo que se ha mantenido en esta revista virtual y por mantener siempre fresca esta página.
Solo que no he podido revisar todos los artículos anteriores que se han publicado acerca de la fotografía documental y la fotografía digital, ni las discusiones que se han suscitado al respecto, así que quisiera saber si puedo acceder a ellos com una forma de consulta a su documentación...

Soy Itzel Aguilera, fotógrafa. Acabo de terminar un doctorado en Barcelona y estoy de regreso en México inicio mi tesis, el proceso en el que estoy ahora es el de documentarme lo más y mejor posible. Mi tema de tesis está situado en la dicotomía documental/digital de la fotografía.
Específicamente me interesa estudiar todo lo que hay desde la foto documental hasta el proyecto documental todo esto dentro del arte contemporáneo que se hace desde la década de los noventa hasta lo que vemos actualmente o propósito de las nuevas tecnologías.

Me interesa muchísimo además contactar con Usted y de ser posible en un futuro que fuera posible que usted me respondiera algunas preguntas a manera de entrevista formal como base y apoyo de mi tesis.

Los cuatro fotógrafos que me interesan sobre todo para destacar el carácter documental de la fotografía son Eugene Smith, Robert Frank, Alfredo Jaar y Pedro Meyer.

En fin, le agradezco infinitamente su atención y espero una respuesta a esta petición.

Subject: New work for consideration

Estimado Pedro Meyer:

Soy artista y diseñadora y trabajo como instructora en el Media Lab de la Universidad de Arte y Diseño de Helsinki Finlandia.

A través de los años he leído con entusiasmo las editoriales y artículos de su revista Zone Zero. En muchas ocasiones me he servido de este magazín electrónico para mantener al tanto a mis estudiantes y colegas sobre la calidad del trabajo de los artistas de orígen Latinoamericano.

Por la presente, me gustaría recomendarle a Ud. el trabajo de Tania Jimena Rodríguez. Tania es una diseñadora mexicana que acaba de completar sus estudios en nuestra universidad. Habiendo obtenido altas calificaciones, el departamento de diseño gráfico otorgó a Tania un premio especial por su labor realizada en el trabajo para el grado de maestría: "The Metaphorical Clock, Towards a Visualization of Michel Foucalt's Concept of the Episteme".

En dicho trabajo, realizado en formato impreso y también como una aplicación en el Internet, Tania utiliza el diseño gráfico, la fotografía, y las nueva tecnologías con el fin de hacer visible dicho concepto filosófico. Entre las fotografías utilizadas, se encuentran las suyas propias y además multiples fotografías de la reconocida revista italiana Colors, cuyo permiso Tania obtuvo.

El trabajo se encuentra accesible al público en la siguiente URL:


Aunque este ni es un trabajo simple, ni fácil de entender, creo que contiene unas ideas profundas las cuales se manifiestan no en la palabra escrita sino a travéz del uso, en combinación, de los distintos medios, como la fotografía. Por tanto, creo que pueda ser de interés tanto para Ud. como para los lectores de Zone Zero.

Sin ningún otro particular, me despido deseándole un féliz y próspero 2002.

Subject: My website


You may remember we spoke ( E-spoke? ) some time ago about young people and technology, when I was wearing my other hat as a photography teacher. Well you were right and I was wrong. This last year has seen a huge change o the part of my students, who have(mostly) grabbed hold of digital and run with it. The blocks in the road have been all mine...

but you know what they say-the worst kind of smoker is an ex-smoker.. and I have jumped onto the bandwagon.

A story..I have just finished a project photographing the young night life of our city, pushing the envelope as far as I could. I used an hybrid technology, shooting on pushed 800 ISO neg and using a film scanner, then outputting through a Fuji frontier....What was interesting was that the scanner/P-Shop approach gave me far more control technically than I would ever have had using a wet darkroom...

But the project came to an end as I pushed conventional technology and documentary approaches as far as I could.

And still I had not reached the point where i was dealing with what was important to me, namely being able to depict the other that I saw around me, the sense of an alternate and somewhat bizarre reality that lies beyond....the life of the city

Then a friend turned up on my birthday with your book Truths and Fictions, and in your work and that wonderful essay by Joan Fontcuberta, I began to grasp a new way of thinking, and to realise what a profound shaking I was now there is a way to put feathers on buildings, and to document my own reality( which, in spite of my trying to be objective and cheat reality and Heisenberg I was doing anyway).

Anyway, to the point of this Email. I have just built a website for myself, and in it I have included a reference to ZoneZero. I hope you will not mind. Perhaps if you have time you would check it and, if you take issue, i will change anything to which you take exception.

Subject: ZoneZero in HTML-ENGLISH

Greetings from Hong Kong, Pedro.

I teach photography at Hong Kong International School (US based) and have recently gotten approval to offer a course titled" Documentary Photography" next year. This will be a challenge as I see it as a project-based course for students that I see on average 4 days a week for 50 minutes per class with one double class in our 6 day rotation schedule (Confused? So are most of us the first few weeks of the school year!).

Plus, most of our students are driven to gain admission to prestigious universities in the US, & so we (Art Dept) have to battle for their priorities. In any event, I see "ZoneZero" as being a primary resource "text" for the students, and while we will use film (at this point) as the primary source of the image, the school is wired & has an active intranet web page, so I'm hoping to be able to successfully converge digital & silver technologies in my classes. We started this in our Intro. class with pinhole cameras where we made paper negatives and then scanned & reversed them in the computer. There is a high WOW factor in that lesson! The limitations are in the computer/scanners available to us & the idiosyncrasies of our network. But when I arrived at the school 5 years ago, most of us knew very little of what we take for granted today. But this is a long-winded way of saying that your efforts are very much appreciated and I look forward to ZoneZero every month. Keep up the good work!

I have been working on "Digital Photography" for a year as a doctoral student. The subject of my doctoral thesis is "Digital Photography and Redifining Documentary Photography".

I would like to keep going on my thesis with your suggestions in the future. Could it be possible to help me on this subject? How can I find any further knowledge in this subject? And, Do you know someone else working on digital photography or redifining documentary photograhy?

For several years I have been a teacher of college-level photography. Some years ago, I was asked to design an online credit course for a New Jersey college and some 350 students have now completed that course. I and they have learned much about craft and technology.

Lately I've been giving some thought to encouraging students to begin to tell stories with their pictures. Then I found your site. I guessed, nearly three hours have passed now as I've wondered about. I've thoroughly enjoyed what you have to offer and can humbly say that the design and level of interaction is outstanding.

It was for a seminar/lecture series about women curators. I occasionally stop by the website for personal and work related info, and have found it to be very informative and quite often inspiring. I am quite interested in the photographic work coming out of South and Central America, especially when it deals with the intersection of gender, sexuality and geographic location. Does that make sense? I am also quite compelled by the growing use of digital phtography, even though I choose to stick with my good old Pentax 35mm. For these reasons, your site is an asset in for both technical and purely visual information.

I look forward to the emails.

With best wishes,
Joanna Sullivan

Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed going through your site. I teach at New York City Technical College after being in this industry for over 40 years.

The class I teach is a Foundations class for Graphic Arts. My student are both in the production end of graphics (printing) and the creative. In my class we touch on every facet of the industry. Needless to say that photography (both conventional and digital) is part of the class.

I will be giving all the students the address of your site as a reference in the handouts and want to make sure that this is ok.

Thanks again

Hello Zonezero,

My name is Paul and I am a studying BA Honours degree in photography at Stockport College in Greater Manchester, England. I'm currently in my final year and writing my dissertation on the implication to photography with the advent of the digital era. While researching I found yourselves. I find your web site very useful in my quest and if you may have any extra possible input that would help my research I would be extremely grateful as its quite hard to find info on this subject as its such a new issue not many people have written books on it. Anyway i'm off to research some more,

Les escribo con el fin de que me incluyan en sus listas de envíos, ya que me pareció por demás interesante vuestro sitio.

Me parece que si bien la red contiene gran información sobre la fotografía, es difícil encontrar espacios tan abiertos y con contenidos como los que ZONEZERO ofrece. lo digo, ya que soy un asiduo visitante de sites de fotografía, ya que desde hace casi 8 años me dedico a dictar cursos y talleres de fotografía en Buenos Aires Argentina, con la intención de mostrar a mis alumnos imágenes diferentes, imágenes hechas mas allá de una técnica fotográfica determinada, pero si logradas a través de las sensaciones y de expresar desde ellas todo lo que uno puede dar.

Realmente me aburren un poco la mayoría de las muestras fotográficas que se realizan en mi país, a nivel fotoclub o escuela de fotografía, ya que estas me parecen demasiado light, sin contenido y con un bajo contenido de compromiso con la imagen. Por lo que decidí mostrar a mis alumnos contenidos de algunos sites de Internet, y o sorpresa, me encuentro que en la mayoría de las paginas de la red, salvo aquellas referidas a los indiscutibles grandes maestros, todas ofrecen mas de lo mismo.

Por tal motivo al encontrarme con ZONEZERO, pude ver que era posible dar con un sitio en español, que representara la fotografía que intento enseñar.

Les envío mis datos y la dirección electrónica de mi taller de fotografía, para que me remitan sus novedades y la información que suelen enviar, para seguir conectado con Uds. además, próximamente les enviare algunas fotos para publicar en vuestra galería.

Les agradezco el respeto por la fotografía y les pido que sigan adelante con su trabajo, que me resulta de una excelente calidad.

Pedro Meyer,

El consejo editorial de la Gaceta Escape Cultural (Aguascalientes) está compuesto por personas cuyo interés está dirigido principalmente al área de la fotografía. El contenido de esta publicación está compuesto por temas asociados a la fotografía y otras disciplinas del arte, intentando mostrar un punto de vista fundamentado y actual. Uno de nuestros principales medios para la realización de la gaceta es mantenernos actualizados en cuanto al avance de la fotografía y la producción de imagen. Para cumplir con este rubro, la consulta en Internet es la fuente más recurrida por la mayor parte de los miembros y colaboradores de esta publicación. En este sentido, la página ZoneZero resulta de gran interés y ayuda, dada su amplia visión y cobertura sobre los aspectos que se refieren a una parte de lo conocido como arte electrónico. Antes que nada, queremos felicitar a usted y a su equipo de colaboradores por la labor que desempeñan.

Por otro lado, en cada publicación tratamos que los artículos vayan ligados, de alguna u otra manera, en cuanto al contenido. En el siguiente número está planeado tratar el tema de la fotografía digital. Además, es costumbre contar con la opinión o manifiesto de una persona conocedora del tema. Por esta razón, el consejo editorial de la gaceta, está interesado en que nos conceda una entrevista; y dada la distancia y disposición de tiempo, proponemos que ésta sea por medio de internet. Así mismo, proponemos que la fecha de la entrevista sea fijada en uno de los días en el período del 29 de mayo al 1o de junio y, de preferencia en horas de la tarde.

Esperando respuesta positiva y sin otro asunto que tratar, reciba un cordial saludo de sus amigos de XkpCultural.

Just a short note to thank you for such a wonderful site.

It has been a real joy to be able to visit it. One of the things I particularly enjoy are the articles in the magazine. I have visited a lot of sites in the course of looking for photography pages and the bulk of them seem to fall into the how-to category, or are relly opportunities for individual photographers to display their own work. Nothing wrong with that, for after all, most photographers are in that camp. But it is nice to be able to visit sites that are intellectually stimulating.

If photography is a journey then there must be waypoints. For my part, I feel my progress as a photographer and educator can be charted by the books I have purchased over the years. In the beginning I bought books on technique. That was. after all, what I needed to know ( and part of a self-generated myth that better technique would make me a better photographer. In fact all it did was give me...better technique

As a retired history professor, I particluarly enjoy reading reading the editorials by Meyer and Hernandez. My one regret about retiring in 1995 was that I did not get the chance to fully incorporate the internet into my classes as I would have done if still teaching.

I really like the galleries as photography is my hobby. I have switched to digital camera for most things except shots requiring a long telephoto (180 to 400 mm).

Thanks for presenting a very useful and informative site.

I am a doctoral student at the department of art history at Göteborg universitet in Sweden. My thesis is going to deal with digital photography.

"The digital caleidoscope - revolution or tradition?" is the title. I'm going to examine what kind of pictures that are made by some nordic photographers who are using digital technigue, and also make interviews with them. Zonezero was the first site I discovered when I started looking for digital photography on the net, and I think it is the most comprehensive and valuable site I have found sofar. I browse the gallery every now and then, and I have also read some of the editorials. I appreciate the site very much, and I hope you will keep going, adding new stuff as well as keeping the archives.

I have two questions: I would like to buy the CD-ROMs of Pedro Meyer, but I don´t find them on amazone. Where can I buy them?

The other question is more diffuse, it's about a series of photography I saw on the web a year ago. It's about people working in the computer business, maybe programmers in Silicon valley. When you go forward, you get the next picture as usual, but when you go backwards, you get the last picture in negative, and another text. Does this description ring a bell? I can´t find it again, and I think the series might be interesting from the point of view of narration.

Por otra parte quisiera comentarles que somos estudientes del sexto semestre en la Escuela Activa de Fotografía en Coyoacán en México, D.F. Actualmente estamos desarroyando una investigación sobre dos fotografos (Nan Goldin y Richard Avedon).

-Los datos que tenemos sobre Goldin es que es una fotografa americana contemporanea y hece dos meses aproximadamente publico en la revista Times, Y recientemente expuso en algun museo de New York. Uno de sus temas principales es sobre las mujeres y la violencia.

-Richar Avedon sabemos que trabajo para la revista Harpes Bazar por algún tiempo, así como tambíen se dedico a la foto de modas y de retrato.

Como pueden ver no tenemos mucha información sobre los fotografos y quisieramos pedirles su ayuda para saber donde podemos encontrar en este mundom del internet, información escrita y gráfica de la obra de los fotografos antes mencionados.
