    Do you collect in digital photos too so that you could have a representative of all the photographers who have contributed to this great enterprise? How is the collecting the art of photography different from other works of art?

    I’ve found snapshot photographs thrown away in a dumpster. I use them in my mixed media work. Are their copyright and /or other issues involved in using “abandoned” photographs?

    In the '80s, MoMA photo curator John Szarkowski called Garry Winogrand, "the central photographer of his generation." Who do you believe is the central photographer of the current generation?

    I have never understood the reasoning or logic behind the photographer Sherrie Levine who has made outright copies of the work of Walker Evans and then displays the prints as her own, with a credit like this: "Sherrie Levine // After Walker Evans." As a professional photographer all my life, this seems like an outright copyright violation. What am I not understanding here?

    Hi Sarah from sunny Scotland. Firstly, I have to say that I really enjoyed Seeing Through Photographs – thank you. Two questions, if you could only save one of the photographs in the collection which would it be and why? And, with other art works conservators will clean, stabilise and repair works – what is the process with photographs and will surface scratches and other damage be repaired – if so how? Thank you, looking forward to the event 🙂 http://philipjlavery.com

    I've read that Man Ray made 'photograms' without a camera. How was this done? Does MoMA have any examples in the collection?

    What kind of chemical analysis is made of the print and do you have to rinse prints to save them from chemicals that may be deteriorating the paper?
