Journeys are Collaborative

Great journeys are never embarked upon on our own. Even a journey of solitude will be one that is impacted by others. Collaboration is human nature.

“Everyday more people connect, come online, and begin their own personal journey of discovery and interaction.”

In our dynamic passage into the socially connected globe, we have collaborated and engaged with one another like no other time in human history. The digital revolution has opened the doors for a new globally connected social revolution. People interact freely in today’s world with physical geography only rarely acting as a shield that veils culture and ideas. Everyday more people connect, come online, and begin their own personal journey of discovery and interaction.

Social Photography is a collective of photographers from around the world that investigate our ever changing and connecting world through photography. We are fostering a dialog about our changing times through our hybrid gallery concept. Our hybrid gallery fosters a conversation about our journey through the evolution of web connected social media through our online Instagram Account and physical gallery, located at Studio B Creative Exchange in Indianapolis during October 2014. Our hybrid gallery is a reflection of the hybrid lives that we all live – both existing in the physical as well as virtual.

“The photographers will reveal their discoveries as well as their struggles and challenges along their journeys.”

During October, as a thematic partner with the Spirit & Place Festival, our collective will focus on telling stories of their personal journeys into this realm. The photographers will reveal their discoveries as well as their struggles and challenges along their journeys.

We invite you to join us in forming a collaborative conversation by commenting and sharing your journey through comments on our Instagram account. Collectively we may all come to better understand our time and paint a clearer picture of where we may go from here.

As a collective, we are honored to be chosen as the preview kickoff to the Spirit & Place Festival and the 40 + events that they will host in in November as part of their “Journey” theme.

Social Photography is supported by the Spirit & Place Festival, Fountain Square Brewery, 12.05 Distillery, IUPUI, and Roberts Camera. Social Photography was founded by Indianapolis based photographer Aaron Pierce. Pierce is a writing and geography student at IUPUI that kicked his photography journey off with the theft of his father’s camera as a toddler.
