What We’ve Found: Color

Photograph by David Egan

Hey, We’re excited to introduce the next theme for our monthly curated web post on Aint–Bad – What We’ve Found. We’re expanding the potential to have your work recognized and admired – we’re thrilled.

So, what’s the next theme? COLOR. 

You may be thinking ‘what’s the big deal, color photography has been around for a while.’  We’re all familiar with William Eggleston’s flawless pioneering in Color film as fine art. We all wish we were able to shoot that last roll of Kodachrome, and we often spend hours color correcting to get things juuuust right. Well, we want to honor those of you who have MASTERED color. We’re not looking for oversaturated images (unless its done tastefully). We’re looking for smart palettes that strengthen and support the subject matter. Its not easy to do, and we think you deserve some recognition.

Dig through your hard drives, archives, whatever, and submit work that you feel displays a mastery of color. That’s all you need to do! No artist statements, no social security numbers, tax records, etc. All we want is a nice, relevant photograph or two. Oh, and your name and website. It’s that simple!

In one month, the submissions will be curated into a post with a statement and exploration of the work through the themes. Its like a little online gallery.

We’ll let you know if you’ve made it into What We’ve Found by April 2nd!
