4th Flickr Assignment Winner

Thanks to everyone who participated in the 4th and final Flickr assignment. I’ve learned so much from these assignments and love the way they relate to my exhibition at the Walker. The reason this exhibition is called ‘From Here To There’ is to emphasize that the process of making pictures is as important to me as the subject I’m photographing. In a sense, my movement through America is the subject.

With these Flickr assignments, I’ve been trying to guide participants toward revealing their own process. The idea of this final assignment was to use text to narrate the photographer’s encounters. In many ways this assignment harkened back to the winner of our 1st assignment, Etienne Courtois. In fact, the runner-up, Vincent Lestienne’s hysterical abécédaire, reminded me a great deal of Courtois’ sophisticated humor. But in the end I chose the more raw and direct series, hide and seek, by Pavel KHailo.

So thanks again to everyone for participating. Hope to see you again somewhere down the road.

  1. Hi Alec,

    By chance tonight I caught you on the News Hour. Congratulations! A fitting end to your run at the Walker. Glad to hear the show may be traveling as well. Maybe you could do a few more Flickr assignments when it does. I enjoyed them very much, and learned more than I bargained for in the process.

    Take care,
    Steve
