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.

For the past ten years I've been supporting imagemakers and their work using digital media. I'm excited to announce a new project that will build on and expand upon those efforts. It's called FlakPhoto Digest: a weekly email newsletter focused on photography + visual culture recommendations carefully curated from across the Web.
The Digest is a weekend reader: something you can spend time with when the work week slows down — an opportunity to sit back and relax with a handful of photo/arts links on your mobile or tablet. Email arrives on Saturdays so you can enjoy over a hot cup of coffee (or tea) when you have a moment by yourself. It's the perfect thing for a lazy Sunday morning.
FlakPhoto Digest is currently in closed beta and will be available to the public later this year. You can request an invite using the form below. I'd love more people to hear about this. Please, tell your friends.
My work is focused on using digital media to promote photography in all of its forms. I do that on this website and on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Google+. Social media are wonderful sources for discovery but they're fragmented and messy and impossible to keep up with. FlakPhoto Digest is my attempt to fashion a signal from that noise — for myself and for you. It's also an opportunity to highlight independently produced work from within the global visual/arts community.
A key part of the project will be contributions from people like you. I'm always looking and love hearing about new work — arts exhibitions, photography books, websites, short films, podcasts, etc. If you're making something, please let me know.
The Digest is the start of a new direction for FlakPhoto. And it's going to impact the shape of our website reboot later this year. In a way, this project is about going back to the drawing board — thinking differently about what I do with photography. This will be a work in progress and my aim is simple: to promote creative community and visual culture. As always, your feedback will be essential in helping me find the way. I hope you'll join me. — AA
