“Lutteur”, portraits of boys in Senegal training on the beach, hoping to one day become famous lutteurs (wrestlers), by Amsterdam-based photographer Ernst Coppejans. More below.
We’ve been getting so many great submissions to our Instagram project this month. In case you missed it, it’s called “Portraits and Songs” and the instructions are simple: Share a portrait you took of someone, pair it with a song title/artist, and tag it #portraitsandsongs. I will be re-gramming submissions to @booooooom all month long!
The images above (clockwise from the top left):
“Here Comes The Sun” – The Beatles, Portrait by @saraheiseman
“Black Water” – Timber Timbre, Portrait by @brittanycalla
“October” – Broken Bells, Portrait by @cleogoossens
“Temporary View” – SBTRKT, Portrait by @thistimemachine
“Through The Ground Glass” is a stunning portrait of Joseph Allen Freeman, a large format photographer. I imagine there was a lot of pressure on the directors, Taylor Hawkins and Nick Bolton, in trying to capture a subject on video when that subject is someone who shoots large format film. They did it brilliantly though, the footage is gorgeous. It’s also really great to hear Freeman speak so candidly about the process. Watch the video below.
“Habits” – Tove Lo / Portrait by Tyler Sandford @sylertanford
This month we’re launching “Portraits and Songs” an Instagram photo project just for fun. Share a portrait you took of someone, pair it with a song title/artist, and tag it #portraitsandsongs.
I will be re-gramming the submissions on @booooooom all month long!
Here is this month’s submission post! Thanks to everyone who submitted work to the September Submissions post, a lot of the work I featured this past month was pulled directly from that post. Happy to see everyone continuing to leave positive comments on each other’s work!
This is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Thanks again to everyone for up-voting work you like, it really encourages artists in this community and helps me see what work you like. I encourage you to share your work here because these posts get a lot of traffic and even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen, and definitely sends traffic to your own websites.
Please share your work here this month. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.
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.
