Visualcouchsurfing Thai dinner at the VCS gallery in Barcelona.
Posted January 9th, 2009 - 11:22 pm by from Barcelona, Spain (Permalink)
hi all,

this will be the first CS Visualcouchsurfing meeting and the planning evening for the Cs Visualcouchsurfing exhibition in February 2009 in Barcelona.
we will eat, discuss and party off course..

Visualcouchsurfing is:

1. a project to give young or old or pros or amateur Photographers a platform for their works. the Photografers are all CS members.
we will discuss later if we open the event and the project for outside CS working people as well. the logistics is work intensive and take time. so for the moment we stay with the status "only for CS members"..
topics for now is only:
"made by CS photographers or about the CS world."

Criterias: quality images as good as you are able to do them. this is about good and better photos. and about making them better with critics and help from the pros..
then the standard formulas: no racist images. no porn. no copies, no other then your own and self produced works!
apart from that whatever you fancy.. ugly black and white wild naked lunch sunset kitsch food artist war peace islands sea sailing turtles fun and bikinis dark sunglasses rats violence cowstits and sunflowers realities and abtract forms and bananas..

2. an exhibition in Barcelona showing and presenting the works that are voted highest and agreed to be the best photos we could find within the Visualcouchsurfing" community.
the exhibition will be shown in "calle san gil 9" in the Raval in Barcelona. the oldest and most original part of Barcelona..
read: "the shadow of the wind", "La sombra del viento" from Carlos Ruiz Zafon..
the exhibition will take part every six months if we still can manage.. and we might find a greater audience after some time and maybe a bigger gallery supporting the project..
after the exhibition the pictures will be sold in a worldwide Cs auction.

3. the "visualcouchsurfing webpage" will continuously present works of CS photographers around the world.
and we will publish their works and support them with critics and help from the pros..

all CS photographers and wannabes are welcome to join us on the 20th of January 2009.

hi all,

it's the beginning of February and i think we should start to comment and value the pics.

the best 20 will end up on the wall here in our little CS gallery.

i think we should do it simple and easy:


and the Exhibition will start on th end of february after the Carneval. if we start earlier we only will have drunk visitors, apart of ourselfs..
(maybe not even the worst case scenario..yeahhh!!!)

so we need points..

you should all send a mail to visualcouchsurfing@gmail.com with the best 5 pics and each of them a point between 1 and 5.
so: choose the photo you find best and like most and give it 5 points, choose the second best in your eyes and give it 4 points and so on..
i will add all the points and publish the best 20 photos who got the most points.. in a new folder on:

http://Picasaweb.google.com/visualcouchsurfing

and please don't give yourself points!!! hehe, not eben with a wrong name..

and all of you guys take part, even the ones who didn't take pics..
please tell everyone in CS to judge the photos and give us feedback..

any help very appreciated.

see you all soon,

Adam
