I posted some of Anthony Gerace’s photos a little while ago (see here) and he emailed me the other night to say he got some work with The Guardian because of it.

I’ve posted this with his permission because I feel like all of us trying to live off our passions are in this together. We’re all struggling together so we should celebrate our successes together too.

Way to go Anthony!

    i’m with both of you. ride on!

  • You have indeed built a wonderful community, Jeff…as artists, we so need one another. And I love the selfless, generous way that you promote the talents of others.

    I teach at an art school, and when I tell my students that I have a poetry site where I post my work daily, and that they should all have their work/a portfolio online/a blog, they often ask me, “Aren’t you worried someone will steal your ideas/work?”

    It’s funny….sure, it’s terrible for folks to plagiarize the work of others (that happens in poetry, but very rarely, thankfully)….but our first impulse, as artists, shouldn’t be to hide what we are working on in fear. That closes us off from connection to our peeps!

    Thanks for what you do.

  • ya i was more afraid of having ideas stolen when i was first coming out of art school, it does happen but i can’t think of the last time it’s happened to me. i think i was afraid i wouldn’t be able to keep coming up with ideas but i’ve learned that if you’re an idea person you’ll always have new ones

  • Some positive vibes to set us up for the weekend 😀

  • it’s all about building. let’s build together.

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing

slo2

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
