The PhotoStory project is an initiative of local Latino artist that aims to create a story told by a series of alternating visual and literary submissions. The Photo Story Project is an initiative of local Latino artist that aims to create a story told by a series of alternating visual and literary submissions. Our goal is to bring SC Latino artists together for a common artistic venture in order to bridge Hispanic artistry with the American culture.

To initiate the project, the first participant (a visual artist) sends in a picture that is both inspiring and interesting. Then, the second participant (a writer) creates a piece of literature (poem, short story) inspired on the visual submission presented by the first participant. Then, a third participant (a visual artist again) comes, and inspired by those two previous submissions, submits a photo to continue the story that has already been initiated. The fourth participant will be a writer again. The project will continue this way -alternating visual and literature artists- until the whole story is created (there will be 20 participants -the number of countries in Latin America)

At this time, we have a few artist already committed to the project and we are trying to identify more Latino artists willing to participate in order to complete the project.

To initiate the project, we invited Diana Blandon to participate. She is a photographer from Colombia. Her picture inspired Ivan Segura -the first writer of the project- to commence a story. For the third piece of the puzzle, we invited another visual artist Marcelo Novo, a renowned painter from Argentina. He will continue the story with the submission of a new painting. This alternation of visual artist and writers will continue until we complete 20 Latino artists.

The guidelines for the project are quite simple:

  • All materials submitted must be original and never before published.
  • Participants understand and agree to follow and continue the story that has been told before their participation.
  • Visual Artist can submit only one piece (i.e. One photograph, one painting, one sketch, etc)
  • Writers can submit a piece of literature (Short story, poem, etc) no longer than 750 words.
  • All participants have only one week to complete their assignment and present it to be published on the PhotoStory website.

If you are interested in participating in this new initiative, please send us an email to presidentschlc@gmail.com
