It feels like a long haul, but most of the website is now online (homepage=http://livingexposed.com) and visible to anyone with an internet connection! Though still in development with more than a few sections to iron out etc., with a bit of luck the final pieces will fall into place shortly for this initial effort of staking out our own little corner of the web. The goal is an “official” – not that anything around here is really too official – launch date of December 11th, coming up in just a few weeks.
Living Exposed began as an idea many years ago now, and to this point it’s been a long process of largely internalized trial and error, thinking and rethinking, experimentation, and refinement… Now with some initial work completed, it would seem that the time has coming to initiate the sharing of our first efforts and ideas, and to begin to build momentum towards tackling new work that might build upon this “new” foundation and approach. I know that much remains to be done – that we have really only just started – and from here on out it’s exciting to think about the whole endeavor building its own history online. Thanks to everyone who has already been involved for all the help and encouragement in so many ways, and here’s to working with many more photographers, people, and communities down the trail.
A quick word about why. The byline – One Shot – underscores the notion that in life, often like in photography, we each ultimately enjoy only a finite quantity of experience. If Living Exposed realizes its intended purpose, then it will challenge all of us involved to improve the quality of that experience – an endeavor for which cameras, looking and seeing, and indeed photography might be more valuable than we often tend to assume.
So, watch this space. And thanks for reading!
