Sending out a big thank to all of you who came out to our September Visionaries event “Summer Streets at Dekalb Market”. Those of you who came know it was a really great evening full of storytelling through imagery and words.

DJ tres dos started off the evening with some great tunes while we waited for the sun to go down. Then we checked out photographs of those who participated in the summer photo assignment “Documenting your Block”. Sion Fullana started the discussion off by sharing how he came to be at the forefront of the mobile photography movement – how the camera served as a tool to connect with subjects. Through his beautiful iphoneography (Instagram: @sionfullana), he showed how how he was able to compose many a love letter to New York City by capturing those who live beside each other, in their own different worlds. Radcliffe “I’m not gonna say much” Roye then took the stage to fill the space with his stories – how he finds an image or how an image finds him – how all cameras (his iphone included) have been a way for him to get to share a moment with his subject and through his images, share their essence.

Please join us for our upcoming Visionaries event at Dekalb Market where we’ll have a group slideshow featuring images from your summer photography assignment – your block – followed by presentations by Sion Fullana and Radcliffe Roye.
If you missed it before, you can see details of the photo assignment here. If you would like to submit photographs for the group slideshow, please select 10-20 photos (or less if you don’t feel you have 10 strong, unique images), resize them to 1024 pixels on the long side at 240dpi (or the highest resolution your camera takes) and save them as jpegs. Rename each file as: firstname_lastname_01.jpg, firstname_lastname_02.jpg, etc in the sequence you would like them shown. Then email me the images with “Your Name – Submission” in the subject line to email@example.com. Please send your images to me by September 9th so I can assemble your names and images into a slideshow for the event. Email me if you have questions.
Again, here are the details for the upcoming event. It will take place outdoors so we can enjoy the warm weather as long as it lasts. Here is the link to the Facebook event so please spread the word. Hope you can make it!
