The start of something new — FlakPhoto Digest.
We’re developing a new project, a weekly newsletter focused on photography + visual culture recommendations carefully curated from across the Web. You know, the good stuff that deserves a closer look. FlakPhoto Digest is currently in closed beta and will be available to the public later this year. You can request an invite by subscribing below.
A collaboration with The BUBBLER @ Madison Public Library
Hey Photo People!
I’m excited to announce a new FlakPhoto project - this one close to home, where I live, in Madison, Wisconsin, USA.
The Society for Photographic Education Midwest Conference will take place at the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus October 16-18, 2014. That program coincides with the Center for Photography at Madison's biennial PhotoMidwest Fest event, the James Watrous Gallery's Paul Vanderbilt exhibition, the city of Madison’s annual Wisconsin Book Festival, the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art’s From Here to There: Alec Soth's America exhibition, and a semester-long Wisconsin Arts Institute residency, Truth, Lies, Memory, and Imagination: The Photograph as Story, hosted by Little Brown Mushroom’s Alec Soth and Brad Zellar.
Fall 2014 is the season for photography in Wisconsin.
Lots of Midwestern photographers will be in Madison for the proceedings and it's the perfect occasion to bring the FlakPhoto community offline to celebrate the tradition of photo print-making and the joys of looking at pictures in person. So I’m teaming up with The BUBBLER @ Madison Public Library to present a FlakPhoto Midwest Print Show to be held at the Madison Public Library in September/October 2014. In the spirit of the Bubbler's DIY approach to art-making we'll show unframed prints. My aim is two-fold: to highlight a cross-section of photographers currently living and working in the American Midwest and to provide a place for Midwestern photo people to share their passion for pictures together.
Call for work - Submission is FREE http://t.co/obizmH7lC8 (RT)— Andy Adams (@FlakPhoto) June 26, 2014
Submit your work for consideration using the form below. I’ll make selections by reviewing website portfolios and will announce contributing photographers in September. This exhibition is for love of the game: there is no fee to enter and exhibiting photographers will need to foot the bill for printing and delivery to Madison. The BUBBLER will cover costs for returning unframed prints after the show has closed in November.
