As those of you who watch my account (IanStruckhoff
) probably know, a great deal of my focus has shifted from my photography to my writing in the last two years. While my time has been limited, I'm still powerfully drawn to photography, and it is long past time to scratch that itch.
To that end, I have founded a new group, showcasing the most astonishing photography I can find. Think of LaboratoryX
as a virtual art gallery, with Ian X. as the curator. Or, if you prefer, think of it as a workshop of impossible alchemy, the nexus of magic and science, of beauty and technology. Somehow, such a chemical metaphor seems appropriate to photography.
The group doesn't include my own photography. This is what happens when I apply my "eye" not to my own viewfinder, but to the wider world of photography. This is the art that most inspires me. Every photo accepted is, as I see it, nearly perfect-- Many are beyond that, and truly astonish me.
Please join us in the laboratory...LaboratoryX
