Thank you Pattern ! - Social isolation doesn't mean lack of inspiration -

Events and Exhibitions Canceled

In response to the COVID-19 spread we are canceling and postponing all scheduled exhibitions and events until further notice. That said, social isolation doesn't mean lack of inspiration. Below are some things to keep us excited about the world that we are taking a break from it.

Step aside Netflix

    Who needs the anxiety of watching Contagion or Black Mirror. Here are some great collections of films to keep you engaged with the photo and documentary worlds.

    FlakPhoto YouTube Chanel

    Andy Adams over at FlakPhoto has put together a great collection of photography videos on Youtube.

    American Suburb X - ASX.TV

    American Suburb X does incredible interviews and book reviews and their video collection, ASX.TV, has some wonderful gems.

    Magnum Learn

    I can think of few more inspiring ways to spend this time inside than watching the Alec Soth: Photographic Storytelling, a recent addition to the Magnum Learn catalogue. It is like a masters class from the comfort of your living room. It is $99 well spent. But if you can't make that work in this belt tightening time, let us know and Pattern can help out.

    International Documentary Filmfestival Amsterdam

    The IDFA has made a large archive of documentary films free to stream online (thanks to Mike Shum for the info)

    Portfolios are Passé

      Instagram can be a horrible place to see photography and many portfolio sites are equally bad. Here are some wonderful websites from photographers who use the online medium as a way to explore the complexity of their work, not just the prettiness of their pictures.
