Gallery opening – Right now, online & you’re invited!

Posted by liveBooks

Thank you for joining us for the inaugural IMPACT online exhibition, a new project exploring the blog medium as a venue for photographic work. RESOLVE is excited to be hosting this experimental new project.

By clicking on the links below the IMPACT logo, you can move through the exhibition, viewing galleries of images, all related to the idea of “Outside Looking In.” Each “gallery” will include a series of images a photographer has uploaded to their blog along with this same IMPACT logo.

At any time you can click on the IMPACT logo to be taken to back to this post, where all the participating photographers are listed. (The “next” button actually takes you to a random gallery, so keep clicking if you get a repeat.)

By allowing viewers to move between different photographer’s online galleries, we hope to gain exposure for their work while providing a multifaceted visual study of the chosen topic.

We also wanted to remind viewers of the important role photographers play around the world, so we asked participants to share images from a project where they had an impact or were impacted themselves. If inclined, they have also included a link to an organization that they believe is having a positive impact on the world. Please help us increase this project’s IMPACT by sharing it with your community.

    Congratulations, another interesting experimental initiative based around the old 'web ring' idea…some nice work although not sure much of it is 'Outside looking in'. I think editing the content or those photographers included is going to be key to the success of this sort of picture tour otherwise it only adds to the homogenous mass of unedited imagery already out there.

    Great points, Nick. Stay tuned…..

    I'm interested to see where this goes. I agree with Nick-the images are beautiful, but unless this has a stronger focus/tighter edit it just adds to the deluge of imagery I see every day.

    I do love the next button and the full photo series + text option. Its a great contextual element and makes this sort of an online gallery walk.

    One complaint- I wish I could see the images full screen in an uninterrupted gallery-as it stands now, this is just a blog post. Not necessarily a terrible thing, but the photos are beautiful and I'd love to take advantage of my screen real estate and really *see* the photos.

    Thanks for the input guys. We are liking the idea of having a guest curator for the next exhibition, which we think will help tighten up the images. This was a bit of a trial run.

    Jake, we'll see what we can do about offering all the images in a larger format. We like the ease of having people put galleries on their blog, especially because part of this is about exposing the audience to blogs they might be interested in following, and driving traffic to those photographers. But we might be able to do something a little slicker with SoundSlides etc.

    The subject is fully clear but why does the text lack clarity? But in general your blog is great.
