As you know Wandering Bears content has dramatically decreased over the past 12 months. This is a combination of a few things. Time; as our careers have developed in our respective fields so too have our work loads. Becoming busier and busier has been a great thing but not so much for WB. Another factor was inspiration, the principles and circumstances on which WB were based have changed and our perspective of what we wanted to achieve became unclear.
But as ever, with WB it was the constant conversations, meetings, emails and messages from people all over the world that keep us inspired. This thread of inspiration and time away from the project allowed us to reevaluate and consider what we should do with this platform that had been created to promote and show great photography.
So after many long discussions and debates we have come up with WB CHAPTER. We are reversing the role that the internet has in distributing articles and blog posts on a frequently changing basis. We intend to publish every 6 months (or whatever it takes to get a substantial amount of work, articles, interviews, new ideas collected) and release these articles all in one go, amassing in a bounty of posts that will remain on the site for people to browse at a leisurely pace.
For those addicted to the high pace flux of imagery that we have become accustom to from 2010 – 2013 we will continue to post on our frequently updated Instagram Takeover and Tumblr. But in the meantime enjoy sitting down, relaxing and engaging with a host of amazing contributors to the first ever WB CHAPTER – No.1.
