Reflections on Interdisciplinary Practice

Photography, to me, is interdisciplinary by nature. What that means to me goes back to the question; what is a photography? I think a clear explanation for where I am coming from with that question is this.  Is the photo itself the capturing of light or the process of printing a photograph. Modern means of capturing images and storing data will definitely point to the capturing of light and not just printing. However, a digital image is a calculation. If I took an image with a film camera and never printed it what would that be? Nothing? There is an expectation of being able to see an image.

The point I would like to make with the above paragraph is that photography is a science.  That science is used in countless ways across a plethora of practices.
