Not counting our first impromptu showing at Arles last month, STRANGELANDS is our collective first foray into the real world. We’re all basically strangers, most of us never having met off of the internet.
Greg Flanders summed it up like this:
STRANGELANDS is a collaborative effort by an international team of photographers that aims to meld geographically distinct images into one sweeping and dreamlike landscape. The end effect is a sometimes surreal, always surprising juxtaposition of artist, place and vision. More than a reflection on the blurring of boundaries through international means of communication, strangelands is a celebration of today’s odd marriage between the local and the global, the hyper-specific and the triumphantly cosmopolitan.
strange.rs brings together 22 photographers from major cities around the planet. The group is united less by a common aesthetic than by a certain quixotic vision of the world, one that seeks out the subtle strangeness hidden behind everyday reality.
If you can’t make it, we’ve made it pretty easy to follow the festivities from the comfort of your home.
