founder of on photography &
illustration agency and uno art space,
BLINK is a print magazine and it’s presented online ( blinkreflex.com). The editor and founder is ARam Kim, an
amazing lady totally in love with photography and the arts. She quit her job as an art editor for an art magazine,
and decided to invent her own magazine. I am stunned by ARam’s energy, her amazing taste for incredibly fresh,
sometimes funny, sometimes strange, sometimes serious and always broad range of intelligent international
art work which she presents … in Korean and English. Examples of photographers she has featured include Holly
Andres, Cécile Decorniquet and Yann Gross. ARam is an incredible, self-made person. She spent 15 years of her savings to create and publish BLINK and is now waiting for sponsors or advertisers. And I hope that she will find them.

There are many sites that I use, but here are a few favorites: Jenren (jenren.posterous.
com) is the brainchild of Jenny Barnes of Carmichael Lynch. What I like about the site is
how she’s organized things the way art buyers think. She also has an exquisite sense of
taste so I know that everything I see will be visually appealing. Great food for thought.
I use newer sites like FoundFolios ( www.foundfolios.com) and old standbys like
Workbook ( www.workbook.com), PhotoServe, PDNOnline, At-Edge.com and ASMP
Festival of the Photograph and See
Change Conference, which is basically a
visual and mental feast of images, ideas,
exchanges. Last year Rodney Smith was
one of the speakers; this year photographers Jim Fiscus and Tim Mantoani
will be speaking. I’d say the majority
of people who attend have been from
the design community but it is open to
anyone who is ready to be inspired by

Look3 Festival of the Photograph in Charlottesville, Virginia. It is an unbelievable weekend attracting anyone and everyone interested in photography. Created by photographers, the festival advertises itself as “ 3 days of
peace, love and photography.” It incorporates something for everyone—
exhibits, workshops, outdoor projections, lectures. It’s impossible to not
walk away inspired and I always meet so many creative individuals from
different photography backgrounds.
Also, I’m a big fan of Kinfolk magazine. I love everything about it—
photography, design, paper, printing. Very inspiring.
