How We Are Now
For a change of pace today, I wanted to take a minute to let you know what’s happening with another great Yahoo! site – Flickr*. If you haven’t seen it before, Flickr* is an award winning photo sharing site that has been called “completely addictive”. And for the amount of time that I spend on it, I believe every word of it. Check it out.
For the very first time, the Tate gallery is inviting members of the public to contribute to the content of an exhibition. How We Are: Photographing Britain (Tate Britain, 22 May — 2 September 2007) takes a unique look at the journey of British photography, from the pioneers of the early medium to today’s photographers who use new technology to make and display their imagery.
If you join this Flickr group* your picture could be on display at the Tate and also on their website. Your photograph can be submitted anytime until 25 July 2007. You can add up to 4 photos to the group.
But before you add your photograph
Please make sure your photograph:
• was taken in the United Kingdom
• illustrates and is tagged with one of the four themes of the exhibition: portrait, landscape, still life, documentary.
Check out the Flickr group for full details and the Tate’s slideshow to see the pictures which are on display so far.
And if you get one of your photos selected, please come back and let us know.
