Index

The following is intended to serve as an index of my writing on Conscientious (2002-2013) and Conscientious Photography Magazine (2013-…). This index only lists longer pieces. In other words, it omits photographer profiles, short commentary etc. from Conscientious. It also omits pieces that didn’t fall into the broad categories listed below (for a full listing of the pieces, please see the respective archives).

The index comes in different versions: a list of topics, a list of conversations/interviews, and a list of all the articles indexed. In the topics index, articles are referred to by their publication date (abbreviated as DDMMYY), with direct links.

While the index is far from being perfect, it allows accessing a very large number of articles based on fairly specific criteria. Please note that some of the articles from the Conscientious archive contain links that do not work any longer. Given the size of this archive maintenance of those links is impossible.

Looking through all these pieces, I also found a lot of material that I disagree with now or that I now would approach differently. The index allows comparing older material (thinking) with more recent content, so it also allows seeing how/where my thinking has changed over the years. Much like the website itself, this index is going to get updated on a regular basis. – JMC
