I talked with Deep Splash about recent curatorial projects and inspiration behind them:

Paul Paper speaks about his fascination with the internet communities from his teenage years when he lived in a block house in Vilnius. He explains the ideas behind “Sraunus” and his collaboration with Max Marshall “Blog Reblog”. The film acts partly as an interview and partly as a remediation of both projects.

Alexander Norton reviewed Contemporary Photography on La Pina:

This appears to be well over due. A publication able to place a spanner in the works and challenge instead of follow. As you may have picked up in my recent articles there is a theme of small dissatisfaction with the internet era and where its mis-leading photography.
