Booooooom Submissions / May

May-Submissions-600

It’s time for a whole new month of art submissions! Thanks for submitting your work to the April Submissions post. Big big thanks to those of you who take time to leave nice comments to artists who submit work, and please keep upvoting work you like! This really helps artists in this community, this way work that I may not feel is a fit for the site can still be seen, and everyone can get visits to their personal websites.

Please share your work here during the month of May. The comments allow 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.

Best of Instagram: Week 18

Here is this week’s Best of Instagram post. Aside from Valerie, these are all photographers with smaller followings. I should also mention that for these features I’m making a conscious effort to feature photography that isn’t all that same heavily filtered, faded, VSCO style that is consuming Instagram.

Guest posters often take over our @Booooooom Instagram, so if you’d like to be considered for a future “Best of” post you can connect with me on my personal Instagram account @JeffHamada. You can and should leave a comment below with a link to your Instagram along with an image from your feed!

Benoit Paillé Photographs the Virtual World of Grand Theft Auto V

Benoit-Paille-13

Montreal-based photographer Benoit Paillé uses the virtual world of the Grand Theft Auto V video game to question the practice of photography in his series “Crossroad of Realities”. Paillé waits for hours inside the game environment for lightning to strike, or rain to fall, and seeks out the perfect spot for a sunset to appear, so he can capture it all with his camera. Then he painstakingly re-creates the lighting in studio and stages a person using an array of picture taking devices to be composited into the photographs.

His work questions our use of technology, authorship, analog photography, and photography as a whole, in a world that is increasingly becoming digital.

Watch the video below to get a better idea of Paillé’s process and hear him talk about the work. Lots more images below.
