CONTEMPHOTO ’14 / The International Conference on Contemporary Photography has been created with the aim to reach a comparative perspective on urban issues, displaying the heterogeneity of the urban culture. Multiple roles of photography is going to be explored in relation to city as document, witness, survey, archive, ethnography, advertisement and artifact. A key theme is the relationship between photography and urban change and how photography contributes to the production of urban space, documents the emergent morphologies of urban development and refers to broader shifts in the visual economy of the city. Moreover it is including the indeterminate spaces that lack morphological definition, so called non-places or terrain vague.
