Katerina Jebb TV Takeover / Heinecken Explains Heinecken by Phil Saveninck

“American artist Robert Heinecken made some of the most exciting works of his generation by manipulating mass media imagery. He founded the photography program at UCLA and was a teacher there for 30 years. His work asks questions about society, pushes boundaries between mediums and presents American culture back to itself as a humorous and distorted vision of dystopia.” – Katerina Jebb

This is a film by Phil Saveninck recorded in April 1988 at a conference of the Society of Photographic Educators in Phoenix Arizona . “Many pictures turn out to be limp translations of the known world instead of vital objects which create an intrinsic world of their own. There is a vast difference between taking a picture and making a photograph.” – Robert Heinecken
