Andy Adams, one of the most tireless promoters of visual arts that I’m familiar with, launched the FlakPhoto Digest the weekend before last, a nicely curated weekly newsletter that’s worth the time of any serious or even semi-serious photography enthusiast.
If you’re not familiar with Adams or his work, from his website intro:
I live with my wife in Madison, Wisconsin and I’m passionate about working with digital media to promote the visual arts. For the past ten years, my projects have explored the intersection of digital communication, online audience engagement, and web-based creative collaboration to foster photography culture on and offline. I publish FlakPhoto, a website that promotes the discovery of photographic image-makers from around the world. In my spare time, I host the FlakPhoto Network, a 12,000+ member online community focused on conversations about visual arts culture.
I’ve been following Andy / FlakPhoto on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for a while, and he never fails to provide and share an exceptional selection of work. FlakPhoto Digest is, well, no exception. The few hours I spent with it on Sunday morning proved to be my second best experience of the day — but that’s only because Totó La Momposina was in town. The weekend digest won’t always have Colombia’s Queen of cumbia to contend with.
It’s still in an experimental phase so not quite ‘open to the public’. But you can request an invite from his website here.
