Wandering Bears have partnered with London & New York based agency Webber Represents to produce an exhibition featuring a carefully curated series of ‘likes’ from a range of renowned contemporary photographers, artists & editors.The idea of this show is to present the viewer with a visual representation of what a selected group of industry leaders are looking at on a daily basis, providing an insight into today’s viewing habits and image consumption.
Through each participant’s own Instagram account over a one month period, any image they have ‘liked’ has been published to a readily accessible custom built Tumblr feed.
The images the participants ‘like’ will offer to an extent a visual representation of themselves, but more directly, a visual representation of their interests, their likes, and their interaction with photography on a daily basis. Throughout the exhibition’s process, we have been keen for it’s participants to explore what this means. Some have simply continued their social interactions as normal, ‘liking’ images as they do, while others have looked to develop a more conceptual and focused approach. The results on display in the exhibition will reflect the participant’s own unique approaches and individual relationship toward photography.
The final outcome of the project will be the participant’s stream of images, printed and displayed in an A3 scroll, the length of which is dictated by the amount of their month’s ‘liking’. Presented in Webber’s white wall gallery space. In addition, on sale at the opening event are 18 editioned prints by each of the participants, with all profits going to The Light House Refugee Relief charity. This will be a fun way to enable the audience to take something away from the show, as well as making a donation to a good cause.
