Our Window


For the past 6 months or so I have been working on a photography project with fellow photographer, YoungDoo Moon. The idea is described best in the little bio that I wrote for the project:

“OUR WINDOW began in September 2009 when YoungDoo Moon and John Carey started to create a weekly photographic diptych hoping to find serendipitous discoveries where two visions colided into one.

Once a week each photographer submited a photo based on a pre-determined theme unaware of what the other had shot. The two photos were then combined to discover an often beautiful connection found in both the concept and vision each photographer brought to the idea. While they started the project as a way to get to know each other in a unique way YoungDoo and John continue to work on the collaboration for the love of the art and the unexpected connections that are created within it.

Our Window is an ongoing series which can be seen on the official website of the project, www.ourwindow.net, and this is the first exhibition of photographs from the series.”

Its been a wonderful experience and we have had a lot of fun working on it. While we have taken a small break in posting while I have been here in Korea with her we will get back to regular posting soon I’m sure. I feel that the series has just begin and I am looking forward to seeing where it ends up in another 6 months and hopefully we will build a book from many of the images eventually.

The other big news around the idea and the reason for posting is that together with YoungDoo we are having a small exhibition on friday here in seoul at a fantastic french bakery here featuring nine images from the series. The opportunity sprung out of nowhere and we have jumped right on it and have printed up postcard flyers and the photo prints are being framed nicely now. The opening will be this friday and there will be food and drinks for those who come.

The website for the project is sort of half way done but it works well enough for now but hopefully we will get that updated this week before the opening but you can click through the photos to see what we have done so far. I have included the postcard here after the read more link as well for those interested or if any readers are living in Seoul and want to come out and say hello!

    This idea just sounds awesome!
    Maybe I will do something similar with some fellow photographers around me.

    Thanks for sharing, the combinations look awesome!

I ask that you refrain from using any images found on fiftyfootshadows.net to create physically printed material of any kind. This includes posters, photographic prints, fliers, etc. Under no circumstances may you make a physical reproduction without written permission.

These rules also apply for any artwork or imagery submitted and shown within this site which was created by an artist aside from myself. Any images submitted and shared as wallpapers are the property of the artist who created them and in the same manner as my images, you are asked to receive permission before using them in any way aside from their intended use. Any use of these images outside of for your own personal use as a desktop wallpaper image is prohibited without permission from the author of the image. Commercial licensing is available upon request. Please write with any inquiries.

When sharing images via your personal blogs I kindly ask that you link back directly to either the post the image was taken from or the base of the website at www.fiftyfootshadows.net and give a credit to www.fiftyfootshadows.net. Do not re-post full resolution desktop images anywhere without permission. If you would like to use an image for your blog background or something of the sort simply write to ask first. Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
