“Beautiful Empty” – call to artists

<a href="http://johncommon.bandcamp.com/album/beautiful-empty">Can You Hear Me by John Common &amp; Blinding Flashes of Light</a>

This is an open call for photographers of any age, background, skill level, and artistic point of view to participate in Beautiful Empty Photo Conspiracy – a music+photography collaboration. The goal of this project is simple: to use the release of a new record from an indie band as creative inspiration for more and different art, and through this collaboration, to bring the music and photography communities closer together.

Beautiful Empty Photo Conspiracy will be curated by Lucia De Giovanni, an award-winning photographer, internationally known photojournalist, and founder of MYPP, Mentor a Young Photographer Program. Participating artists will draw their inspiration from Beautiful Empty, the new record from John Common and Blinding Flashes of Light.

Every photographer who participates in this project will have their work promoted online at www.johncommon.com and at other Beautiful Empty Photo Conspiracy websites. A subset of the photographic entries will be chosen for physical viewing at a special exhibit in Boulder, Colorado at the Fox Theatre on Saturday, June 12th – the night of John Common & Blinding Flashes of Light’s Boulder CD release for Beautiful Empty.
