How about taking some of your own photography and crafting around that?
a frame, mixed media, iron-on transfer, button, key chain, wallet....

!!! This sounds awesome. I do believe I've been waiting for something like this for quite some time ^ ^

I don't think I'd be able to do it anytime within the next two months, as I am trying to figure out three swaps (one of which I'll probably be organizing) plus college-related decisions, but I would love to sometime after, or a round 2!

I would definitly be up for this one if its in May time?

Would it be just any photography or could you say "I would really like landscapes/portraits/abstract" etc?

Sounds like mid- or late-May may be when we do this.

As for content, I think that would be the artist's call Wink  I'm into architecture and portraits myself.

I think I can do that Smiley

Cool Smiley I'm into portraits as well, and architecture to some extent. I think what I mostly do is try to convey abstract, human or narrative messages through the use of inanimate objects, natural and man-made scenery, unique lighting situations, and people (I usually pick two or more of those subjects and attempt to use the interaction between them within the frame as a facilitator for whatever message I'm working on).

Question: did I just describe, I dunno, a huge section of what photography is with that last paragraph? Lol. In any case, I'm really excited that you brought up this idea! (especially as I might decide to major in it)

Photography majors unite!!

I'm transferring to Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland this fall. I'll be majoring in Photog!

I'd like to expand my repertoire outside of inanimate objects and "classic" portraits and focus on marginalized communities.

A couple of artists I just "discovered" and am really digging right now are:
Tina Modotti -- www.modotti.com
David LaChapelle -- www.davidlachapelle .com/home.html
Joel-Peter Witkin -- www.edelmangallery. com/witkin.htm

Wow, that's awesome! Congrats! Smiley

If I go into photo it's likely I'll go to the Art Institute of Boston Smiley

I just briefly checked out those websites and the skills of the photographers are amazing (to my amateur's eye, anyway). I particularly like Tina Modotti - she's more down to earth and comparatively minimalist than the other two, more my style I think. I also love the window into history that her work presents. I'll have to look into her more Smiley I'd also be interested to see what David LaChapelle's films are like - the brief description of Rize that I've read sounds intriguing!

A photographer I similarly "discovered" a few years ago, and whose work I've been in love with ever since, is Arno Rafael Minkkinen: http://www.arnorafaelminkkinen.org/ He uses entirely traditional processes, and when I say traditional, I really mean it - ancient formats, ancient equipment (I saw a picture of his cable release and thought I was looking at an antique. I might have been), ancient technique, but a completely fresh and invigorating vision. I could go on and on about him, but I'll stop there Smiley

I too would like to expand my repertoire. I'm not quite sure what I want to focus on yet, but I think it'll come to me as I try new things and see new places and situations. The reservoirs of possibility in my backyard, hometown, relatives' towns, and in other familiar places are drying up for me and fast Tongue
