Come celebrate the results of DART St. Louis 2013. This is a casual happy hour featuring a huge projection of the submitted images. This event is open to everyone, whether you participated in the photography challenge or if you would just like to see the results.
DART St. Louis is a participatory photography challenge. Creative St Louisans gather biannually at FK Photo Studio to throw darts at a giant map of St Louis City. Over the following month, participants visit the location where their dart landed and make a photograph within a one-block radius. Everyone then reconvenes for a happy hour and slide show to celebrate the experiment's results.
A camera is a powerful tool that gives the photographer a reason to explore topics and places that are unknown. By the mere act of photographing, things that were unknown become captured, understood, and made personal. By experiencing new areas and meeting new St. Louisans, we can see more clearly the hope and promise of our own neighborhoods and our own neighbors.
This is all St. Louis, and it's ours.
The camera makes everyone a tourist in other people’s reality, and eventually in one’s own.
