Many artists include photography in their work, but they very often do so using a non-traditional approach. Dutch artist Jan Dibbets does not consider himself a photographer, although he has used the process extensively in his conceptually based work since the 1960s. James Welling, on the contrary, manipulates many of the technical elements of the medium, like light filters, and turns others, such as screens and gelatin, into the subjects of his work. Following an introduction by Anne Rorimer, independent scholar and curator, the artists discuss their varying approaches to conceptual art and photography with Christophe Cherix, Curator, Department of Prints and Illustrated Books, The Museum of Modern Art, and organizer of the exhibition In & Out of Amsterdam: Travels in Conceptual Art, 1960–1976.
