No Comment - Post a comment

Some Beizig Sami had the great idea of launching a photo contest on the theme Facebook Tunisia, in black and white.

The winning photo will be collected to be the most votes, evidenced by the following comment "Vote Tunisia."

55 participants and particpations are already closed.
Not bad for interest on the part of "facebookeurs." The theme is not original but is the approach is!

For once you invited me on Facebook event really interesting I could not pass up the opportunity to talk about it.

I don't really like Facebook that much but I really like the idea of challenges about photography.


Sandton Convention Centres, Johannesburg. 13 au 16 mars 2008.

The curated show As You Like It is a unique element of the Joburg Art Fair. Simon Njami and Thembinkosi Goniwe have selected 29 emergent contemporary artists to exhibit the ‘now’ of contemporary African art making. The show provides an overview of the general themes in contemporary African art along with a fresh perspective of the scope of the field itself.

I'm really delighted to see such events promoting photography in Africa and more happy to see two Tunisian artists on the list, Africa needs a voice a way to show up the way it wants to, as a major photojournalism victim the stored life in the continent was always a wasted potential behind the scene of war and starving.

Tunisian beautiful peaple on Flickr

No Comment - Post a comment

When Flickr first started there was only a couple of groups dedicated to show up photos of Tunisia: Tunisia, Tunisie and my group "Tunisian Photographers Group" and a fist of Tunisian photobloggers, now there are a hundreds of them powered with many Gigabytes memory cards and a hunger for uploading.

The people out there are four categories:
- The family album champions: this is my mama, my daddy and the dog of the neighborhoods who vanishes after getting rid after sending emails to everybody showing how smart they are by having a free service.

- The Tourists: Tunisian or foreigners, their vision of the surroundings stuff is worth sharing it on the internet, they have some kind of pioneer feeling that leads to make them feel good.

- The amateur photographer: those people have gone beyond being able to download photos from their camera or taking their family into pictures, their ambition based in others conquest is to make the finest and best photos that fits into groups, gets comments and making him feel stepping small feet into the photography Sahara.

- Professional or semi-professional photographer: confirmed well trained photographer who trusted flickr, those people are the fewest Tunisian to be there as Amine Messadi.

Anyway, all along the years Flickr, beside many others photo sharing services is the most popular thing even if I always said that Tunisian are Yahooholic, I think that we did choose the best ways to show our photos.
