Don’t Take Pictures exists to showcase the work of emerging photographers. In addition to publishing photographers in print, and online in our monthly columns, we also publish online quarterly exhibitions.

Found in the velvet lining of an antique jewelry box, in a drop of blood, or the pattern of a startling wallpaper, the color red is linked to many meanings and emotions. Prior to the late 1890s, color photography was considered a pipe dream—something that only madmen would claim to have accomplished. Today’s photographers take for granted the technological achievements that made recording the vibrant hues of their environment possible. Whether red inspires images of first loves or leaves in the fall, for Seeing Red, Don’t Take Pictures seeks photographs that feature red as the prominent color.

The exhibition will be published online from November 21, 2018 — February 19, 2019.
