Do you have photos that are too hard to keep? We will take them.
Since 2009, artist Jason Lazarus, has been collecting photographs that are too painful or irrelevant for their original owners to hang on to.
These photos become part of large art installations that are exhibited internationally, including a show at The Contemporary Jewish Museum. If you feel your photographs are too private to show in public, they can still be donated and they will only be exhibited face-down.
How you can participate: 1) Submit photos through this Tumblr, then delete the originals 2) Mail photos and photo objects to: Jason Lazarus, 1516 N. Kedzie Ave, #3, Chicago, IL 60651 3) Email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and then delete originals
We will be posting photos from the archive for the next few weeks, so follow to look into the archive.
This is the best thing on the Internet. We undress everyday and it shows us how confined we are. Those imprints show how uncomfortable we are throughout each day just to impress other people. We create prisons in our own clothes. We are a prisoner in a socially constructed idea of what is beautiful.
