One of the featured artists of this years Sideluck III – Cate Cameron

Featured Artist for Slideluck lll in the ‪#‎Activism‬ Category – Cate Cameron

Cate Cameron is both a cultural/humanitarian photographer as well as an onset still photographer in the motion picture industry. She is also the founder of Cameras 4 Change, A registered non-profit, C4C engages and inspires marginalized and vulnerable populations. Through educational photography workshops, and provides them with the opportunity to transform through creative self-expression, sharing and collaboration.

From: The Flowers Are Talking by Cate Cameron

The peyote people of the Sierra Madre:
The Huichol—or the Wixáritari, as they call themselves—are an indigenous people that live in the Sierra Madre Occidental region of Mexico. They speak Wixarika, a wholly unique Uto-Aztecan language. Their traditions and lifestyle, maintained for generations, are strongly linked with nature and richly steeped in folklore and shamanism. Their art, particularly their beading and yarn paintings, are renowned for their intricacy and beauty.

Annually, the Huichol take part in a pilgrimage to a sacred spot called Wirikuta. There they harvest peyote—which they use, according to their tradition, to heal and regenerate their souls. This pilgrimage is one of their most important rituals: Considered both an honor and the root of their cultural identity, it allows them to commune with the gods.

Living much the same way that they have for thousands of years, the Huichol are now experiencing a period of transition brought about by the introduction of western culture, electricity, and other hallmarks of modernity. Their artisans have engaged by selling their art, but in many remote communities their lifestyle has been much in tact until recent. There has been both a migration of community members to cities and, alternatively, progressive encroachment on their native communities.
In the summer of 2014, I stayed with and photographed the small communities of La Cebolleta and La Laguna in Jalisco. They are very proud and self sufficient people, whose art and religion is deeply intertwined. And though they’ve worked valiantly to maintain their traditions, it’s apparent that an era of change has begun. As someone fascinated by the intersection amongst time, tradition, and culture, witnessing and documenting the beginning of this arc is a great honor. I am planning to return to these communites as part of an ongoing project.

My work would not be possible without the Ha Ta Tukari initiative and I would like to also give thanks to Isla Urbana, Proyecto Concentrarte, and Luum for allowing me to work in this way, and begin this journey.

Besos,
Cate Cameron

One of the featured artists for Slideluck III – Clare Hodgetts

Featured Artist for Slideluck lll – Clare Hodgetts

An experienced photographer, Clare Hodgetts strives to use her images as a catalyst to get the conversation flowing about environmental conservation and education. Her mission is to move people from caring about issues to active involvement by raising awareness of organizations and their missions through the use of her photography and fine art prints.

In her words:
“My slideshow for Slideluck is a journey up the coast of Vancouver Island. Down paths flanked by ancient trees, out to cobblestone beaches, and in to peeling waves. Extremes define this coastline. Calm or ferocious, clotted or pummeled, fast or slow. The mood and emotion of the places is what I hope to convey.”

One of the Featured Artists in this years Slideluck- Alessia Palermiti

Featured Artist for Slideluck lll in the ‪#‎Activist‬ catagory Alessia Palermiti of Italy.

As an architect and photographer Alessia observes and documents places on the periphery of metropolitan cities often neglected. She uses her photography to advocate for change.

In her words:
The photography is for me the Interpretation through the documentation, I express myself and my way of observing the world with the images.
Currently in the metropolitan cities the attention is set toward its cultural and economic attractors, often It goes to the detriment of “collective” places (in particular in peripheral urban areas).
These spaces are characterized by strong resiliency, by cultural-social factors and they are influenced by the general environmental context of degrade and abandonment.
“Places” and “not places” in order to increase their inner potentialities, few interventions can bring to the normalcy uncomfortable areas.
My personal contribution, as an architect and a careful observer of the space around me, by using the Photographs is to document the state of them and in the meantime to induce new visions about them.

The understanding and the respect towards the “collective” is fundamental.

One of the featured artists of this years Slideluck III- Robert G Earnest

CapMeet Featured Artist for Slideluck III – Robert G. Earnest

After a very serious accident Robert used his “curious camera” to help himself heal and thus found beauty and meaning in what surrounded him in the night.

In his words:
In January of 2013 I awoke to the sight of acoustic tile ceiling panels. Experience has proven time and time again that this signals the start of a very bad day.
I would soon learn that I had encountered an unannounced patch of black ice waiting at the bottom of a hill on a dark country road.
I was left with broken bones from head to toe and no recollection of the incident whatsoever. It seems I never will.
Restless with the healing process I began to hobble out into the night with a curious camera and a measured pace. There was no reasoning, no intention to save the world but soon there was an obsession with the beauty of the world at night. A beauty that few adults ever experience combined with the vulnerability of being somewhat crippled and alone in the darkness of the night. A lot of time was spent observing and questioning my own irrational fears. Overcoming those fears afforded me some of my life’s most treasured moments. Moments drenched in the perfect beauty of the here and now.

I’d like to share with you some of the beauty that was “Last Night…”

One of the Featured Artists of this years Slideluck III- Mirna Pavlovic

Meet Featured Artist for Slideluck III – Mirna Pavlovic!

 

Mirna explores the beauty and the ruin of abandoned places: “never truly dead, yet never really alive. They precariously tread along the border between life and death, decay and growth, the seen and the unseen …”

In her words:
Abandoned places exist on the edge of known space, in a reality of their own. Never truly dead, yet never really alive. They precariously tread along the border between life and death, decay and growth, the seen and the unseen, confusingly encompassing both at the same time, and thus leaving the ordinary passer-by overwhelmed with an uncertainty of what to do, a discrepancy between the wish to look away and the unconscious desire to step into it. In a culture that increasingly restricts movement in urban environments, exploring abandoned spaces becomes equally as incongruous in nature as the spaces being explored. The act of exploring, like the abandonments, becomes in itself an act that is both invisible and increasingly present. Both suppressed and flourishing. Explorers are drawn to places that merge these opposing unconscious forces with such a tangible brutality, and they themselves become vehicles of disparity, embodying and assimilating the radical alterity offered by abandonments. This project strives to explore these questions of identity and how abandoned spaces not only flirt with, but rather merge polar opposites which, in turn, appeal to our own unconscious desires to walk on the edge of what should or shouldn’t be done, in places that struggle to find their own definition.
