More good news from 2020. The above image of Oliver will be included in the second PH (Photographic Museum of Humanity) mobile photography book. Also grateful for shutterhub mentioning the good news on twitter and instagram. And even better the image is being used to advertise the exhibition.
Mobile devices are often the main vehicle through which we document our everyday life. In light of the COVID-19 crisis, PHmuseum dedicated the 2020 Mobile Photography Prize to explore and understand that surreal moment.
INSIDE is the result of that collective visual reflection on the pandemic. Which are our own personal and collective feelings? Which are the defining values of this historical transition and our expectations to get out of it stronger and wiser? How it is redefining the relationship with our home, family and community? The publication reflects on this historical transition, becoming a medium to immortalize and remember these unprecedented months. Its images speak about these months, about how the world stopped and we all had to confront with our fears and hopes for the future. Images that can become an inspiration for us after the crisis and an important document for the generation to come.
Covid has impacted us all. Massisolation Format in collaboration with The People’s picture is putting together a giant mosaic of a mask. I am happy to have two images of Daisy included in this project. Read more about their projects here.
From the People’s picture website:
The People’s Picture is a photography and design studio from British artist Helen Marshall. Every artwork is made up of thousands of photos yet every single one tells a story. Pictures are powerful. People connect with pictures. People share their memories, dreams and celebrate through pictures.
All submissions will have the opportunity to be featured in the next edition of FORMAT which opens on 11 March 2021. Selected images and series will be included in the exhibitions, in an online archive and more. Together with The People’s Picture to create a large scale digital presentation, QUAD and Derby Museum and Art Gallery for the exhibitions the project will commemorate this moment in history, and celebrate our collective emergence into the ‘new normal’.
@massisolationformat Instagram project has already received over 20,000 submissions from 70 countries, the FORMAT curators look at everything and invite more people to take part in this incredible mass-participation project.
The people’s picture highlighted a few chosen images on Instagram including these three with the following text:
We love this photo by @loomariannevan. “From last year’s photoshoot with Daisy, exploring my Dutch roots. EU citizen in the UK. Covid19 pandemic has inspired people to look at the old masters again. My inspiration came from #Vermeer and Rembrandt.” Visit his Instagram to see the full image and discover more.
We are working together with @formatfestival to create a giant interactive photo mosaic made up of thousands of photos submitted using the hashtag #massisolationformat.
