Global – A group of creatives have taken to Snapchat to launch a photography exhibition on the messaging application.
Over the course of six weeks, six photographers will take control of the thisisitnow show account on Snapchat, using the platform to produce and share original photography and video pieces. Participating artists Nico Krijno, Roxana Azar, Sergiy Barchuk, Ruth van Beek, Lonneke van der Palen and David Brandon Geeting will each have a week to control the Snapchat account to create their one-off digital pieces. The artists will make full use of the app’s image editing options, adding emojis, text overlays, filters and line drawings over the top.
‘The result is an ephemeral gesture within a controlled environment, which is sent directly from the artist to the viewer,’ co-curator Max Marshall told The Creators Project.
