Now streaming: Tape no.7: Mike Sakasegawa. Back in March of this year I had the pleasure of sitting down with photographer, writer, and podcaster Mike Sakasegawa while he was in Portland attending a conference. I became aware of Mike a few years back because of his own podcast called Keep the Channel Open where he primarily converses with photographers and writers. In our conversation we talk about his work, the authenticity of photography, his podcasting projects, and his progression as a photographer, writer, and activist. And of course we had to dissect his famous viral lemon video.

Kindred, produced by Tobia Makover, was an unconventional, site specific, photo-based installation of unique works in Savannah, Georgia.

“We came together to not only create an extraordinary exhibition, but also to be the very epitome of a movement that calls for artists to not only take full ownership of one's own creative life and career but also, to lift and support one another in doing so.

We feel changed by the experience of this collaboration and by those who have shared their sentiments about the installation, the individual works, and the connectedness of a vision seen to fruition.

We are grateful.”

Diffusion X Call for Art

Call for Art: Diffusion X, Artfully Crafted Photography Annual. Join us in celebrating Diffusion’s TEN year anniversary! It’s a milestone we are very proud of. In an effort to reflect our appreciation for our readers’ support and the photographic community in general, our theme for our tenth annual is:

A LOVE LETTER TO THE CRAFTERS OF PHOTOGRAPHY

In our podcast, The Diffusion Tapes, the topic of “the photographic community” often comes up with my guests and how their peer’s support and collaboration feed their projects. This is what Diffusion has been for me the past ten years, a vehicle for collaboration, a venue for personal curatorial expression, and most importantly my lifeline to some the finest people I’ve ever met.

And although I’m here for the art, I am biased to the people. I celebrate you.

So now, let us celebrate some art. A love letter to the the crafters, an homage to the history, the celebration of bonds made, you know, all the warm and fuzzies. For this milestone issue we intend to focus more on storytelling and less on abstractions. Help us spin a yarn. How about in ten chapters? Seems apropos to me.

Submissions close June 17, 2019

We talked a little about her history, her evolution from 2-d photography to 3-d photo objects, her camaraderie with fellow photographers, her themes of femininity and family history and how teaching has been one of the most rewarding parts of her photo career.

Described as ‘a wonderful bundle of inspiration,’ Diffusion is supported by an audience of photographers, gallery directors, educators and art enthusiasts worldwide.

What people are saying about Diffusion IX:

Just received my copy! I can see the love and care that went into it. Colors are moving. Print quality is magnificent. Taking it all in is like a tactile experience for my eyes. Thank you for bringing it all together. Inspiring!

Ahhhh, what a book! Just received Diffusion IX, turning the pages and enjoying every moment! Very proud to be part of this publication and love seeing the work of my very talented friends, congratulation to you all!

So excited to receive my copy... I am so incredibly honored to be included with the new posthumous collaboration I am doing with my father. Blue Mitchell thank you for all the beauty you bring to the visual dialogue...

Super excited to be included in the new Diffusion Annual IX. Just arrived in my mailbox and it’s stunning. Thanks to Diffusion and Blue Mitchell for their support and hard work. This is a real honor to be included amongst such incredible photographers, many of whom I have met, some who I have only connected with online and through exhibitions, and lots who I can call friends.

Received mine, it's fabulous. Love the little gold seal on the envelope, made it feel like something really precious. Thanks for doing such a great job representing alternative photography!
