Andrew Fisher is a research fellow in the Department of Photography at FAMU (the Photography Department of the Film & TV School, Academy of Performing Arts, Prague) and principal investigator of the Prague-based collaborative research project ‘Scale, Measure and Proportion in Contemporary Visual Cultures’. He is a founding editor of Philosophy of Photography (2010–present). His current research centres on the significance of various conceptions of scale for historical and contemporary photographies. This has resulted in a series of publications, including ‘Living with the excessive scale of contemporary photography’, in T. Dvořák and J. Parikka (eds), Photography Off the Scale (Edinburgh University Press, 2021), and ‘Der fotografische Maßstab’, in C. Spoerhase, S. Siegel and N. Wegmann (eds), Ästhetik der Skalierung, Sonderheft 18, Zeitschrift für Ästhetik und Allgemeine Kunstwissenschaft (Felix Meiner Verlag, 2020). Amongst other ongoing projects, he is currently working (in collaboration with Anke Hennig) on a translation of Sergei Tretjakov’s 1931 book Feld Herren into English.
