Speaker – Jeremy Green
Jeremy will be presenting and discussing his involvement in the creative photographic project called the Daily Photo Game. He is one of the 2018 slate of 10 contributors, and he will be sharing his experience, including images and revelations about what he has gained as an artist by participating.
The Daily Photo Game is a year-long, online visual conversation between 10 juried professional photographers. Every day, one of the ten photags involved posts a picture. The following day, the next photographer in line creatively responds to that first post. The following day, the next photographer responds to the previous day’s post, and so on, and so on. Every ten days, the order circles back to that first photographer, and this continues for a full year. As you might guess, the results are breathtaking!
Imagine having 24 hours to craft a response to another person’s work, develop an engaged narrative, take the shot, edit the shot, and post the shot! Plus, know that in 9 more days, you will be doing it again, and again for a full year. The personal fortitude, time commitment, artistic determination, and ongoing challenge to your creativity is impressive. Jeremy is a professional, and a creative powerhouse, for sure, and you won’t want to miss his presentation about this unique and interesting game.
