What We’ve Found : Social Media

Julien Mauve

Hello again! SO 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? SOCIAL MEDIA.

For our next monthly themed web exhibition on Aint–Bad – What We’ve Found we will be celebrating a day that is basically like any another day – national social media day.

June 30th is a day dedicated to the thing that now defines us more than ever, how we interact, communicate and share our lives using platforms that have changed the way we see ourselves and our culture – social media.

With all that in mind, social media has not only changed our personal lives but our culture and art. Photography in the age of social media is both more powerful than ever, but also in an identity crisis that challenges and pushes us forward.  In the race for likes, shares, and comments, photographers are taking to social media to discover it’s endless possibilities and yes, also heartbreaks.

This month we want to see how you harness social media in to your photographic work, if you use it as your tool, if you criticize it, if it’s your medium of choice, if you use its aesthetics or if you Richard Prince it – we want to celebrate social media day with your work.

Dig through your hard drives, archives, whatever, and submit work that you feel fits within the given theme/concept. 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, or three! Oh, and your name and website. It’s that simple!

Please follow the submission guidelines CLOSELY. If you fail to send the correct formatting/information, your work will not be considered.

In about one month, the submissions will be curated into a post with a statement and exploration of the work through the themes. It’s like a little online gallery (without the Hors d’oeuvres).

We’ll let you know if you’ve made it into What We’ve Found by June 28th!
