I have been following the online photography gallery Streit House Space with great interest for awhile and was delighted to be selected for their recent exhibit, 'This is It.' The gallery is run by Jordanna Kalman, a photographer and curator under the simple premise: "photographers submit their work via email which is then printed, displayed on a wall, documented and finally posted online."
Why is this interesting to me? Well, firstly, I think Jordanna's personal work is brilliant and I love her gallery's aesthetic and philosophy. As a photographer who obsesses over every detail, from inception to print production, it's a refreshing experience to let that image go entirely. Streit House exhibitions are essentially a photograph of a selection of photographs, printed on whatever paper and printer the curator deemed fit and I just love how each of those individual images cohere in a new, dreamlike narrative borne out of Jordanna's imagination. It's kind of like being in someone else's dream and that is a wonderful feeling.
