Another year has come and gone so it’s time for my year-end photo post (I guess it’s tradition now). Thank you, each and every one of you, for your continued support of Booooooom! I am thankful everyday that this is my job and I hope I can keep doing it for a long time. There are now more than 57,000 of you connected to Booooooom on Twitter, and another 114,000 on Facebook. That is insane. Hello also to the thousands of you that joined the Secret Email Club this year, I’ve really enjoyed putting together those extra little bits of weekly inspiration for your inboxes. Okay, maybe not always weekly but I think less is more when it comes to email.

This was a milestone year for Booooooom, developing a project for MTV, producing videos with artists like The Sheepdogs and Little Scream. Now we’re kicking off the new year working on The First-Ever Booooooom Book which will be published by Chronicle Books! I’ve never made a book before and that’s why I wanna do it. At this point I could keep running Booooooom the same way I have for the past five years with my eyes closed, but where’s the fun in that?

This next year I want to push way beyond what I’ve done so far, beyond what’s comfortable and easy. I want to fully pursue new challenges. Actual challenges – not things I know I can do. I want to explore new ways to engage this community. My interest in art is being eclipsed by my desire to connect with people, and connect those people to other people. I want to have a physical space for Booooooom where I can screen films for free. I want to create an event that combines Art with Bingo. I want to film a series of videos where I build paper airplanes with people while I interview them, and each one ends with us throwing our planes into the air from somewhere really high. I want to build an app, a drawing tool. If you are an artist who can code I want to collaborate with you. There are a million things I want to do and 2013 is the year I tell everyone my lofty goals so I have no choice but to do them before someone else does.

I hope you’ll stick around, it’s gonna be good.

Here are 64 photos by 64 photographers that I came across in 2012. These photos weren’t all produced this year, I just encountered them at some point in the last 12 months. Enjoy.

    Great images! I like the snow scene with the horse shape laying down, such a clever idea, I pinned it to my ‘Horses’ pin board to fuel my obsession with horses!

Music Video: HVOB “The Anxiety to Please”


Part music video, part art installation, the tracks off HVOB’s latest album are something of a dialogue (or rather a “trialogue”) with Austrian artists Clemens Wolf and lichterloh. Each collaboration operates as a self-contained piece (installation, music, and video), highlighting different materials and their mesmerizing transformations. Check out the captivating experimentations for “The Anxiety to Please” off the album Trialog below!

Booooooom Reader Submissions: December


Thanks to every single one of you who submitted work to the November Reader Submissions post, it’s really cool to see all the talent in this community!

For those of you who are new, these posts are the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Up-voting work you like and leaving the positive comments to each other helps me see what work you like really pumps people up. I encourage you to do both! These posts get a lot of traffic so even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen by many (and definitely sends traffic to your own websites).

Please share your work here this month by leaving a comment below. The commenting system allows images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.


Submission guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
