Introducing #PhotosWeLove

May 9th, 2016
(We just sent this out to our ACP email list. To receive blog updates like this via email, festival specific announcements, or volunteer opportunities, please sign-up here.)

Have you fallen in love with a photograph? We've launched a new initiative on Medium to explore how, why, and what we love about photographs (one picture at a time) and we want to hear your story.

While photography's more popular than ever, we're interested in closing the gap left by the ease of clicking "like", "fave", or a bunch of emoji hearts.

For starters, here's an introduction and how-to participate.

Jason Francisco describes the paradox of photographic observation in this self-portrait from Esther Bubley:

Michael David Murphy looks at the how an Internet meme is a gift that keeps giving (like a sewing machine!)

You could be a photographer, curator, collector, scholar, or a fan of your friend's blazing Instagram feed. We want to include stories, articles, remembrances, and hot takes about photographs you love.

Because then, they'll become #PhotosWeLove.

Feel free to let us know if you have any questions, and please share widely!
