This is a project/exhibition happening in Musée de l’Elysée, Switzerland now. It’s an experiement in “the rapid mutation of amateur photography in the digital age”… they want to put your work up on their gallery walls! You can upload your photographs via the web and if selected, they’ll email you a photograph of your work on display in the gallery.
This is the blurb from their website:
Everything is changing…
… how we take photographs, manipulate them, share them, store them — even how we pose for them. Our tools are mutating quickly, promising ever faster, clearer, brighter and cheaper pictures. Meanwhile telephones become cameras, desktop printers morph into mini-printing labs, and high-definition screens threaten to dislodge the venerable photographic print from gallery walls. And the eyes of the whole world are only a click away on the computer keyboard.
It’s a fun experiement for sure! I sent in some of my images, and will most likely be sending some more in. Here are the pictures they emailed me of my images being shown:

It’s a pretty cool feeling to see your work displayed in a museum, even if only for a short time! The dates of the exhibition ‘All photographers now!’ are from February 8th, 2007 to May 20th, 2007. Get involved here.
