Fiiiirst: Visual Conversations Between Pairs of Photographers

Photo by Valerie Chiang

 

Fiiiirst is a project by Guillaume Tomasi which orchestrates exchanges between pairs of photographers whose identities are kept secret from one another. One photographer shoots a photo and the other responds to it with a photo of their own. They go back and forth for a couple months and then the results are published and identities are revealed. The images I’ve included here are from an exchange between photographers Valerie Chiang and Olivier Seignette. Have a look at the rest of their conversation below.

Kickstarter of the Day: Too Good To Be Photographed

Johan Rosenmunthe

 

Too Good to be Photographed offers a collection of photographs, essays and conversations around the topic of photographic failure — that is, the inability of photography to always accurately replicate what we see and our assumptions about what photography should be able to do.

Curated by Lithuanian photographer Paulius Petraitis (aka Paul Paper), who spoke with over 60 artists on the subject, the book will feature more than 150 photographs and 47 artists from around the world. Watch the video below and check out the Kickstarter to learn more.

It worked really well last time so we’re doing it again! We’re currently accepting submissions for takeovers of our @Booooooom Instagram account. At this time, this is an open call forphotographers only (there will be a separate call for artists).

Each takeover will be a triptych (3 consecutive photos in our feed), these images should relate to each other in some way either visually or conceptually. There will be room to caption each image so you could potentially tell a short story or describe an experience in 3 parts.

If you are interested, leave a comment below with a clickable link to your Instagram account, the images you’d like to share, and a title or bit of text to accompany your triptych.
