The fine folks at BAYCAT, who spend their days teaching and empowering Bayview-Hunters Point youth, are in the midst of a 7-week fundraiser that involves Instagram and hashtags! Each week, there’s a theme (such as last week’s: “our digital city”). Anyone can post photos that illustrate the theme, and each week a judge judges the best ones. And for every photo submitted, BAYCAT gets $1. And at some point down the road, the best overall photo wins some prizes.
This week, I’m the judge, and I picked the above photo. The below photo is runner up.
The next theme is “unexpected art.” Submit your entries via Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, using the hashtag #BAYCATbyYou
Our boy Joshua Cobos, of the popular Bad Blood with Joshua Cobos series, wants you to have some physical copies of his work:
I moved to Los Angeles about three months ago and have slowly been setting up my studio off Sunset Blvd in Hollywood. Upon unpacking, I found the collection of prints I had made while living in San Francisco. While I love and cherish the memories formed through collaboration and exploring, I have decided to not print these works in any other form. Instead, I would like to share these photos with my friends and compatriots of Photography. I hope they find a good home.
