100 PORTRAITS — 100 PHOTOGRAPHERS
Andy Adams has put together a selection of portraits from FlakPhoto.com archive. He says: “For the past four years I’ve been publishing FlakPhoto.com, a website that features contemporary photography from an international community of artists. This fall, I teamed up with curator and Indie Photobook Library creator Larissa Leclair to produce a photo projection for FotoWeek DC.
“In the spirit of the public art projection in Washington D.C., I developed this digital exhibition so we can share the work of these artists with an international online audience, wherever they are in the world. Since launching in early November 100 Portraits has been viewed by more than 30,000 visitors from 24 countries.
“Online publishing and community collaboration are inspiring forces in my photo work and this project is another part of my mission to promote significant artists to a global audience of people who are passionate about photography.”
