  1. A few weeks ago I finally received my copy of Mossless’ Issue 3: The United States (2003-2013). It’s an incredibly ambitious photo book of more than 200 pages and contains the work of 118 great photographers from the all across the US and elsewhere whose work focuses on documentary photography and the American social landscape during the last decade. In addition to Issue 3 being an invaluable addition to my modest but growing art book library I also have a little bit of personal pride in this book. Romke Hoogwaerts (who along with Grace Leigh runs Mossless) wrote this in his introduction to the book on page 6: 

    "…These photographs were all sourced from the internet, chosen intentionally, not submitted. Many of the photographers we found were made visible to us by a few dedicated bloggers…a prodigious Nate Burbeck even maintained a collection of blogs dedicated to providing exposure to young artists from every quarter of the county."…"Their contributions to the internet made this book possible and here I will proudly thank them! It is to people like them, and every photographer that decided to share their work, that we owe our gratitude of experiencing so much."

    The blogs Romke is referring to are part of my regional art blog project here on tumblr that I ran for a little over a year (fly over art, beyond 9th ave, in the new frontier, and dim with beauty). Many of the photographers featured in Issue 3 were previously featured on one of those regional blogs and were thus found by Mossless. I was unaware of this at the time that I was maintaining those blogs (that is, until I discontinued them) but I am so thrilled that the work I put into them eventually helped in a small way to make such a beautiful book. Mossless has gotten a lot of great press in anticipation for the book, all of which is well deserved. I hope that recognition of their efforts only continues to grow, not only for Mossless but also for all of the incredibly talented photographers featured in the book, many of whom I consider to be influential on my own work in painting. It’s thrilling for me to say that I can associate myself with a great project like this (and great people) and to know that artists really can reach out and help their peers gain the recognition and exposure they and their work deserve. Best of luck to Romke, Grace, and all the photographers featured in Issue 3. You all have bright futures ahead of you and I can’t wait to see what comes next.

    If you haven’t picked up your own copy of The United States (2003-2013) I highly recommend doing so. You will not be disappointed.

  5. staff:

    Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

    Ready? 

    Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

    (Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

  6. tumblr painting resources?

    nburbeck:

    I’ve noticed over the years that there are a lot of outlets on tumblr and elsewhere for photographers: zines, blogs, features and the like.

    Does anyone know of any similar resources for contemporary painting?

    Nothing? What if I said I was asking for a friend?
