All About Photo has dedicated itself towards the world of photography and nothing but. But considering its ambitious nature, the group is looking to expand its footprint.

What is All About Photo?

All About Photo is driven by a passion for photography.

All About Photo is a trustworthy resource for photographers and photography lovers.

All About Photo is only 18 months old but already endorsed by more than 500 photographers, including Masters of Photography and more than 1,200 institutions!

Why? Because All About Photo is a helpful and easy tool. Information includes: photo labs, framing stores, equipment and studio rentals, camera repair shops, schools, agencies, museums, galleries, photo institutes and centers, contests, portfolio reviews, exhibitions, fairs and festivals, books, online and print magazines and, of course, articles related to photography.

It’s looking to acquire $25,000 through Kickstarter. They’re not yet close to reaching the goal but there’s plenty of time left to go on the crowdfunding. As a bonus, if you’re a fan of potato salad, All About Photo is triumphing an ancestral French recipe that it will share with anyone who donates a mere dollar. For those who are privy to greater funds, more will be returned to you in gratitude for you donation.

Every gallery, at one time or another, seeks to put on a true showstopper of an exhibition. Compiling the finest of what they have available in their collection, Lumiere is currently exhibiting their “masters”.

These prints from the cameras of twenty different photographers include iconic images from the artists’ larger bodies of work. From California to New York … from Paris to Uzbekistan … they span a spectrum of themes: including urban structures, traditional landscape, portraiture, abstractions and social commentary.

The exhibition was also curated to underscore the importance of relationships and collaborations. Edward Weston with his sons, Brett and Cole – as well as Wynn Bullock; Ansel Adams with Al Weber and Pirkle Jones; and Jones with Dorothea Lange.

The artists: Berenice Abbott, Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Alexander Rodchenko, Dorothea Lange, Georgi Zelma, Boris Ignatovich, Bill Brandt, Al Weber, Imogen Cunningham, Brett Weston, Tom Neff, Margaret Bourke-White, Andre Kertesz, Aaron Siskind, Arnold Newman, Pirkle Jones, Paul Strand, Edouard Baldus and Wynn Bullock have left a legacy that will inspire us for years.

There is also an online gallery available, so if travel plans to Atlanta are not in the works, take a look on Lumiere’s website.

As a creator of just about anything, presenting it to a respected contemporary in one form or another is inevitably a crucial step in validation and growth. Social media have provided unprecedented outlets of greater convenience; in the VASA Connection’s project, photographers have their own tool for growth.

Vasa Project

The VASA Project in an online media studies workshop connecting individuals and communities on a global scale who have interest in media studies, photography, digital media arts, and sound.

To meet its vision, the VASA Project supports online media-related workshops; gallery talks by artist, critics, historians, and theoreticians; curated exhibitions; an e-bookstore; “Transmedia” the VASA Project blog, and other media-related blog projects and discussion groups.

The VASA Project is based upon the union of two familiar environments: the traditional workshop model and networked digital media technology.

Utilizing Connections, aspiring artists have the opportunity to be given an online portfolio by respected members of the photography community. The beauty, of course, is that there is no limitation on whom will give the review since VASA is a global network. The service isn’t free, but it is still cheaper than it would be to meet most of these fair people in person.
