Picturing Dialogue is a year-long photographic project where you and I communicate with each other via photographs. Every other week we will send each other a photograph in response to the photograph the other person sent the week before.
For example, during week 1 I send you a photo of a cat, and in week 2 you send me a photo of a dog. Your photo made me think about a nearby park where I see dogs playing so in week 3 I send you a photo of a park. Another example: In week 1 I send you a photo of a cat. The photo makes you think about the roughness of a cat’s tongue so you send me a photo of sandpaper. In response I send a photo of a tree that has been cut down and so on.
At the end of the year we will have a series of photographs – a photographic conversation. I will use the photos to make a set of artists’ book featuring our photographic conversation.
By participating in this project you agree to take a high-resolution original photograph approximately every other week in response to the photograph I send you. You agree that I have the right to use your photographs in my Picturing Dialogue and Midnight Musings Blogs, in the artists’ books I make specific to this project, and in promotional materials, again specific to this project.
I agree that you have the right to use the photographs that I send you specifically in relationship to this project (not the right to use other photos submitted by other participants or my photos sent to other participants). If you want to make a book, display or use my photographs that I have sent you – in a blog, an artists book or other art media – specifically in relation to your participation in Picturing Dialogue – you are welcome to do so.
We understand that sometimes one of us will be traveling, busy or ill and that our schedule might slip a bit. We might exchange 30 photos for the year, we might exchange 60. Regardless of the number of photos we send each other, this version of this project will end December 31, 2013.
