Theme:    REFLECTIONS

In photography, reflections, so intrinsic to the process of photography itself, has always been a major theme. So many of our famous street photographers have used the modern metropolis’ materials of glass, mirrors, metal, neon, (copper brewing kettles?!) etc. to explore interesting juxtapositions and comparisons or just play with light and shadow.

In this exhibition we would like to bring together a variety of images that focus on all aspects of reflection.

Sincerely,

Like many of you, my heart aches with all the horrifying news coming from Puerto Rico. Heather Elder, a great friend has this great project and I’ve decided to share it with all of you and to those who would like to make a difference

The news coming out of Puerto Rico is awful and like so many other people, I want to help in a meaningful way.  And since we are so much stronger together, I am suggesting an idea that our photo community can be part of, called #GivingPhotography, to offer photography prints in exchange for hurricane relief donations for communities in Puerto Rico, Texas, Florida and the Caribbean.

Already At Edge, APhotoEditor, Le Book and The Workbook have agreed to help spread the word and I hope you will consider participating as well.  Thank you!!!  (So apologies if you get this email more than once. )

Here is how the idea works:

1) Choose a print that you are willing to donate. Any size, any photo, any subject. (This is completely self directed.  You do not need to have your print approved and you do not need to track your donations)

2) Post a photo of it on all social media accounts with information about the photograph and why it is special to you. Aim for 12:00 pst Tuesday, October 3rd so that we can create some momentum.  Later posts are welcome as well of course.

3) Clearly state how many prints of the image you are willing to donate; especially if there is only one available.

4) Ask people to make a donation to the hurricane relief of their choice and then post a screen grab of the receipt for the donation in the comments of your post to prove that the donation was made.

5) And finally, include the hashtag: #GivingPhotography

Some helpful notes:

• Choose a minimum donation amount in exchange for the print.

• Be sure to share the time frame in which you will ship the print.

If you like this idea, please share this post on line and with photographers you know and agents who represent them so that they can get started post a donation. If we make it a priority to spread the word, maybe we can get some critical mass and reach a lot of people who would be willing to help.

Thanks everyone for considering this idea.  And thank you At Edge, APhotoEditor, Le Book, The Workbook and everyone else who helps to promote this idea.  Please direct any questions here.
