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 Light Work
I'm thrilled to kick off the 2012 Flak Photo Galleries program with an online exhibition by photographer Keliy Anderson-Staley. The community response has been amazing and more than 3,600 people have viewed her images since the gallery went live last weekend. Thanks so much to those of you who have shared the post with students and colleagues!
A key part of my mission is to promote independent photo publications, so I'm excited to team up with Light Work, a nonprofit organization that supports artists working in photography, to give away signed copies of Keliy's issue of Contact Sheet to ten Flak Photo fans. Keliy's book, which was published in conjunction with her solo exhibition at Light Work last fall, showcases her beautiful tintype portraits and an essay by Light Work Executive Director Jeffrey Hoone.
Getting in on the drawing is easy: To enter, browse Keliy's Flak Photo Profile and post a link to one of your favorite tintypes in the comments at the bottom of this post. Ten fans will be randomly selected from the submissions to receive a complimentary copy of the catalog. Call for entries closes Thursday, February 2 at 11:59 PM CDT.
I'd love for more people to hear about this giveaway: If you use social media to talk about photography or are connected to an online photo community, please share this post using the buttons in the upper right corner of the page. Good Luck!
PS: Light Work is giving away signed copies of the book too! Visit their Facebook page for details »
