For Your Inspiration: BBC’s Genius of Photography series

I don’t know about you, but I get really excited when I find something that inspires me, and I want to share it with everyone I know. So I’ve decided to start a regular series on this blog dedicated to things that bring me inspiration and that I hope will inspire you too.

Some of these might get a little out of the box (sometimes I’m a little geeky – just go with me). But today’s is pretty close to home for most of you reading this blog. It comes from good ol’ BBC, and it’s a series called the Genius of Photography.

Basically a grand tour of the history of photography over the course of six episodes, the series gave me a sense of my own place. It gave me a greater sense of the history that I am part of. These days, we are all photographers, from those making photographs for a living to those taking snapshots with digital cameras and phones. Photography is now ubiquitous and part of everyday life, but this aspect of our existence did not come to us all at once. We now – all of us – stand on the shoulders of those who went before us.

The photography that we now take for granted actually has an incredibly rich history, and one that will hopefully make us think in new ways about the technology we hold in our hands and about our ability to make images of our world.

The series website is here, and you can also watch the whole thing on YouTube(FYI if you watch the whole thing, I should mention that episode 5 has some explicit content)

Check it out. and come back here to leave some comments. I’d love to hear what you think and if/how it inspires you!
