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.
Jonathan Blaustein is an artist and writer based in the mountains of Northern New Mexico. He studied Economics and History at Duke University, before receiving an MFA in Photography from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn in 2004. He has exhibited his work widely in the United States, and his photographs reside in many important permanent collections, including the Library of Congress, the State of New Mexico, the Brooklyn Museum, MOPA, the UNM Art Museum, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.His work focuses on the intersection of economic theory, globalization, commodification, and culture in the 21st Century. His last project, The Value of a Dollar, was published by the New York Times in 2010, and subsequently went viral on the Internet. Ultimately, the conceptual photographic project was seen by millions of people around the world, creating dialogue about the manner in which food represents deeper issues of wealth, class, power and health. His current project, MINE, debuted in Santa Fe in May of 2012, and was published online by the New York Times. Jonathan also writes about photography and culture for A Photo Editor, a blog for the global photography industry.
