Making Pictures of People — On Current Portraiture
A collaboration with The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art Hello All, Touching base about a new Flak Photo project…
For the past seven years, I have promoted contemporary image-makers and archived their work in The Flak Photo Collection.
Last year, our team partnered with the Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design to produce Looking at the Land — 21st Century American Views, a presentation of landscape images that aimed to expand the ideas of photographic publication and exhibition.
Today I’m excited to announce a new collaboration. In August 2013 curators April M. Watson and Jane Aspinwall will launch About Face, an exhibition of current portraiture at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
They’ve invited me to curate a complementary show that highlights voices from within the online photo community. As with Looking at the Land, I’ll make selections from websites across the Internet. My aim is simple — to highlight compelling portrait photography produced since 2000. SUBMIT All are welcome to submit images for consideration by emailing portfolio links for review via the submission form. (You may submit more than one portfolio for consideration.) There is no entry fee or formal deadline. I’d love more people to hear about this; please share my call with photographers who would be interested in contributing.
Making Pictures of People will be presented digitally in the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri as well as online for public audiences worldwide. I’ll be posting project updates here and on my Facebook Timeline in the coming weeks. Thanks in advance for making time to share your work with me and for understanding that I’m not able to respond to each submission individually. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
Best, Andy Adams
