This past weekend @united_photo went up to Boston for a special walking tour for 7th edition FENCE with our Boston Partner the fantastic Griffin Museum( @griffinmuseum). It once again reminded us of the importance of community and the power of photography. As a tight-knit community we hope you will join us and take a lens view of what's new...

#TheFENCE 8th Edition - The Changing Landscape of American Retail 📸 : Jesse Rieser (@jesserieser) . . . The Changing Landscape of American Retail is an ongoing documentation of the shift from traditional brick-and-mortar locations where we once socialized and interacted with our community, to the stark and generic, yet essential e-commerce. Like memories, familiar retail entities are fading away. Today, they stand as modern-day ruins and architectural artifacts from the not-so-distant past that reach into my own maturing interests and evolving identity. . . . #photography #retailstores #bestbuy #ruins #memories #america #retail #brickandmorter #architecture
#TheFENCE 8th Edition: Home Sweet Home 📸: Francis Meslet ( @francismeslet) . . . Like time capsules testifying to a parallel world, Francis Meslet’s (@francismeslet) melancholic images brave the passage of time, perfect for enabling the mind to wander and ponder, making way for silence following the memories left behind by human inhabitation.

#TheFENCE 8th Edition National Winner: Two Worlds, Same Energy 📸: Lloyd Foster (@_lloydfoster) . . . Regarding sports, Ghana is known predominantly for soccer. However, some of the youth in Ghana are embracing a popular sport in the United States, basketball. Two Worlds, Same Energy highlights young basketball talents from Ghana. Motivated by the success of African professional basketball players such as Hakeem Olajuwon, Joel Embiid, and Serge Ibaka, the youth of Ghana are striving to write a similar story of their own. . . . #basketball #ghana #photography #sport #UnitedStates #NBA #HakeemOlajuwon #JoelEmbiid #SergeIbaka #youthbasketball
#TheFENCE 8th Edition National Winner: Saving Orangutans (featuring @alainschroeder). This series documents the incongruous behavior between man and the environment in Sumatra, Indonesia. On the one hand, humans destroy virgin forests, wounding and killing animals, while on the other hand they do everything possible to save them. . . . #nature #creatures #organgutans #savingorgangutans #sumatra #indonesia
#TheFENCE 8th Edition National Winner: Take Me Away (featuring @nicky_hamilton) depicts the life and times of Canton House, a Chinese take away which opened in the UK in the early 60’s by the Yau family after emigrating from Hong Kong in search of a better life. The series portrays a melting pot of modern day Britain exploring culture, class, and the lonely act of waiting.
D-Day Normandy, June 6, 1944. 📸: Robert Capa . . . As we pause today to remember the enormous sacrifice of so many Patriots of Liberty on the shores of France that horrific day, let us also not forget the work and bravery of the front-line photographers who in harms way captured incredible images in the hopes we never have to experience this madness again.
United Photo Industries (@united_photo)'s #TheFENCE National Winner- Cravings featuring Lauren Vied Allen ( @viedfinder) & Victoria Bouloubais (@thisfeedsme) . . . Food has become one of the most hyper-glamorized commodities. Dining out is among the fastest growing retail sectors in the country. Through varying levels of (self) awareness, restaurant cooks deftly navigate the complex dynamics of class, privilege, and legal status that play out in a changing South behind the kitchen door. The product of their labor is dignified in public view, glorified on social media--cheekily, as #foodporn. It would not be presumptuous, then, to assume that cooks have developed a culinary expertise far superior to any diner’s palate. But we rarely consider their work as a skill. It’s the immigrant’s contribution to us. The voyeuristic gaze of Instagram food porn dives into an aesthetically symmetrical view of a world that is inherently asymmetrical. . . .
Join United Photo Industries (@united_photo) tomorrow from 6-8PM to celebrate the 6th Edition winners of The Tokyo International Photography Competition. 📸: Jaakko Kahilaniemi (@jkahilaniemi) . . . One could argue that the needs of a person are relatively few: food, water, shelter, companionship. But most of us aspire — desire — to reach beyond our basic needs. We want for more. Unlike needs, wants differ greatly from one person to another. Some may want material goods: a car, a home, an expensive watch or piece of jewelry; while others may want things less tangible: travel far, climb high, dive deep, experience all that life may offer. . . . This year the Tokyo International Photography Competition invited photographers to explore the urgent push-pull relationship between “need” and “want” through their photographic lens.
Kameelah Janan Rasheed ( @kameelahr) will return to her hometown of East Palo Alto to explore the relationship between gentrification, community change, and the preservation of local histories. She will work with local residents to create a digital archive of East Palo Alto’s rich history, which includes everything from experiments with founding a college to environmental activism. In the long term, Kameelah hopes to explore the creation of a digital archive template for other small communities that seek to archive their rich local histories. The project examines intersecting issues related to housing, segregation, class, race, gender, economic development, and education. We, Women ( @wewomenphoto) — a new project that will explore crucial issues across the US. Our goal is to create nationwide conversations by combining photography and civic engagement to maximize visibility and impact — all through the lens of women, transgender, and non-binary artists.

Applications due June 30! (Link in bio.) @wewomenphoto @womenphotograph #wewomenphoto #wewomen #blackrage

What is reality? by Amelie Satzger ( @ameliesatzger) currently on view at the @United_Photo Gallery ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To celebrate the announcement of the 2018 @FeatureShoot Emerging Photography Awards we are exhibiting the work of two artists, Amelie Satzger (@ameliesatzger) and Lauren Menzies (@lauren.menzies). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What is Reality? Are we all just a hologram? Is the table still in the room while nobody is watching and why can we remember the past though not the future? After reading the two books “A Brief History of Time” and “The Grand Design” by Stephen Hawking, there were a lot of questions still remaining—and a lot of ideas for pictures. Inspired by the surrealism, I created a photographic portfolio, in which every artwork stands for another thesis of Stephen Hawking’s books. - Amelie Satzger(@ameliesatzger) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #realitytv #tv #pink #stephenhawking #abriefhistoryoftime #thegrandesign #surrealism
@wewomenphoto founding artist, Tonika Johnson’s ( @tonikaj) Folded Map project is a multimedia visual exploration of what Chicago’s historic segregation looks like and how it impacts its residents today. By connecting residents who live on the same street at corresponding addresses on Chicago’s North and South sides, Folded Map illuminates institutional conditions that segregate the city and helps residents understand how Chicago’s urban environment is structured. For We, Women, Tonika will photograph and interview additional map twins, and host a large-scale, public projection of video and photographs in Englewood, her neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side. Through open dialogue, the projection will invite audiences to question how they are personally and socially impacted by their city’s systemic inequity. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are you a woman, transgender, or non-binary artist focusing on a critical issue in the US through photography and community engagement? Apply now to join the first round of We, Women artists. Applications due June 30! (Link in bio.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @wewomenphoto @womenphotograph #wewomen #wewomenphoto #photography
