This is the companion blog for altfotonet.org.
The site altfotonet.org, stemmed from a variety of ideas some of which had been brewing since 1995.
In 1995, my creative interests took a mild detour. The detour was,the web generally, over the years I watched the internet grow and change. By 2004 the web, and it's infrastructure had changed enough to permit uploading, and viewing of images, that were being produced by the cameras that too had continued to improve. Sites like flickr, complimented these ideas.
My interests in photography, are varied, and after several years of hanging around on flickr I realised that the establishment either wasn't taking the idea of online art seriously, or just had no idea what was going on.
Meanwhile flickr had long reached critical mass and the gems were getting harder and harder to find amongst the sunsets, babies, kittens and flowers. I wanted to share and get involved in photography and photographers who were interested in more than some preconceived notion of what constituted a good photograph.
So altfotonet was born.
This blog will serve as a place to source images ideas and discussion for the site. Submissions will be discussed and new finds will be pimped here.
