Sometimes you recieve an unexpected gift that just means the world! I am so thrilled to have been chosen for a Juxt feature through the fantastic Sunday Blues Edit on Instagram.
Four gentlemen started the website and have done a lot of incredible work to promote mobile photography and bring awareness to the artform. I follow an artist on instagram who created a platform called “The sunday blues edit” Her name is Rebecca @repinsk and she is a single mother of three who has suffered from depression for 24 years. Sunday was always a really difficult day for her for a variety of reasons…(please read her feature for The Sunday Blues edit on the Juxt website above) and in order to help her cope with her depression she invited instagrammers to post their own “sundayblues” offerings to the hashtag and at some point during the following week she would choose nine images that stood out from hundreds of entries and arrange them in a grid for viewing on her gallery. My work has been chosen before on these grids, and it always inspired me to create more.
Rebecca never knew that the hashtag would be so popular, and that others shared her sunday sorrows. Blues could be interpreted in anyway, with some artists submitting sad images, and some submitted blue toned creations or whatever they wanted to share. The important intention was that these artists could connect with each other, now people didn’t have to feel so alone on sundays. Rebecca has created a huge international community of mobile artists that submit their images for sundays. She also became so overwhelmed with viewing and choosing the sunday selections that she recruited another lovely artist named Izzy @elvisandme to help her manage and grow the platform.
Anyway, I’m honoured to have been choosen by these two fantastic artists and We Are Juxt. Please have a look at the image they selected and my story.
This link below will give you the opportunity to see my entire gallery if you don’t have an instagram account.
My work can be printed too, but is limited to smaller sizes due to the lower resolution camera. If anything appeals I can help to size, price, and print the piece(s) you like.
