A stranger, MontrÃ©al, Andy
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

Jâ€™essaie dâ€™aller plus loin dans la rencontre des individus, dans leur intimitÃ©. En dirigeant mes modÃ¨les et en les modelant Ã ma guise, je crÃ©e des portraits plus vrais que nature, je capte un regard qui nâ€™existerait pas sans mon intervention. De lÃ peut alors naÃ®tre des sÃ©quences narratives uniques.
Jâ€™interroger le monde hypermoderne dans lequel on vit et je tente de briser l'hyperindividualisme et lâ€™anonymat de la grande ville. En allant dans des non-lieux2 (mÃ©tro, centre commercial, rue passante Ã lâ€™heure de pointe) et en demandant Ã des Ã©trangers de les prendre en photo, je brise pour quelques instants le fonctionnement habituel de ce monde hypermoderne1. Je rends ces non-lieux existants en y crÃ©ant un Ã©vÃ©nement dont lâ€™Ã©tranger va se souvenir.
Approach to photography:
Questioning the modern world in which we are living and trying to break this individualism and the anonymity of the big city. By going into â€œNon-lieuxâ€ (no existing places) (subways, malls, and crowded streets at rush hours â€¦;) and by talking to people to take photos, I break the usual way this modern world works for a few instants. I make real these â€œnon-lieuxâ€ by creating an event that the stranger will remember.
