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.
Chad Ress, born in Kentucky, currently lives in Los Angeles. His imagery is landscape based with a focus on the social forces that shape these physical spaces. His project America Recovered - A Survery of the ARRA documents the stimulus bill of 2009 by combining his images with text provided by the government. It was accepted to Center / Review Santa Fe; awarded distinction by The Forward Thinking Museum; and recently published in both Time Magazine's Lightbox and The Wall Street Journal. Ress is currently a Katz fellow with Arizona State University and the Center for Social Cohesion, in conjunction with the New America Foundation. He is creating an archive of images documenting where Americans go, outside of work and home, to find a sense of community and connection to place.
