Invites: Daylight Blog Residency

Some time ago friend and photographer, Bill Sullivan and I were brainstorming about the blog and what it could and could not do. It occurred to us that far too often many were trying to impose older (non internet) forms upon the photography blogs rather than focus on what they are indeed good at. It also became clear that the blog was a wonderful way to get insight into ones artistic character. With this in mind we came up with the idea of creating a blog residency. Where for one month an artist who normally doesn’t do much blogging would be invited to post. We held onto the idea until Taj asked me to contribute to the Daylight blog. Not only could a temporary blog provide accessibility to an artist who normally doesn’t have that sort of broadcast, but it could be a further understanding of concepts, influences and working process.


Check in on Invites here. With the first invite being buddy Matt Siber, (make sure to ask him about those creepy weird emails about Floating Logos). Future Invites include Michael Wolf, Andrew Borowiec, Mr. Sullivan himself and many others.

    Brian:
    The idea is just brilliant!
    It can be a great setting for collectors, curators and gallery owners to discover work!

    ya, that’s a good idea. and I agree with you that the best part of photographic blogging are very different than older outlets. funny how some folks want to impose the old way onto something that it completely different.

    anyway, i like the idea of getting people who usually do not blog online…just to see what happens and what comes of it.

    Ryan glad you see that too. I’m so much more interested in having a discussion in a room full of people than trying to ’emoticon’ through it online.

    “Ryan glad you see that too. I’m so much more interested in having a discussion in a room full of people than trying to ’emoticon’ through it online.”

    Ya, dialog is a good thing…there are some things that just cannot be communicated online. Online communication is very cool, and there is a lot that can be done with it. A lot of exchanging of imagery and ideas. But then, sometimes a conversation among a room full of people can’t be beat.

    BTW, apologies for the bad grammar and spelling in my earlier comment. It’s grad school melting my brain or something…

    Yes, but…

    Without traffic and linkage, is it a tree falling in the woods?

    Thatcher, the whole Internet has the potential to be a tree falling in the woods (or even any artistic endevor). Is that any reason not to entertain that endevor?
