I’ll be in San Francisco this week to give a presentation at the national conference of the Society for Photographic Education. I’m also excited and humbled to announce that The Histograms will be recieving SPE’s 2012 Award for Innovations in Imaging in Honor of Jeannie Pearce! According to their literature, it’s given to a student project dedicated to:
“work only possible because of emerging digital technologies” and that the jurors “will seek to award work that demonstrates the most innovative, unique, and freshest uses of digital technologies.”
This conference, then, is the perfect time to begin promoting The Histograms distribution project. So if I’m lucky, I might be able to convince some of the attendees to make work with the data set or come up with proposals.
