Mapplethorpe and Me in Silhouette
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).

Robert Mapplethorpe is one of the 'master' photographers.
"The Perfect Moment" (top book) exhibition, featuring essays by Janet Kardon, Ray Larson, David Joselit, and a dedication by Mapplethorpe's longtime friend and rock artist Patti Smith--all of which serve to broaden one's grasp of Mapplethorpe's vision. But most importantly, the book includes photographs. The flowers, the faces, the bodies, the still-lifes, and yes, the controversial photographs as well, over seventy in all. And each, in its own way, is extraordinary.
“I'm looking for the unexpected. I'm looking for
things I've never seen before.” - Robert Mapplethorpe
Me, I just enjoy pushing the shutter... that's me in silhouette!
