Does the decline of the darkroom mean the end of "real" photography? This program profiles contemporary artists who use a variety of methods to create photographs, from the analog-only lomographers to those who employ the computer as a camera. Adaptation of traditional techniques is seen in works by Frederic Lebain, who prefers an old Instamatic; Vera Lutter, who built a room-sized camera obscura; and in Christian Marclay's homage to 19th-century cyanotypes. The video also examines the many ways in which photographers have embraced digital technology, such as Heather Dewey-Haborg's "photo sculptures" based on DNA; Joan Fontcuberta's "Googlegrams," mosaics of thousands of images culled from the Internet; and Oleg Dou's eerie portraits of children who look more online-avatar than human. Also covers Andreas Gursky, Beata Gutschow, Loretta Lux, Thomas Friedman, Thomas Ruff, and Jules Spinatsch.
