This hooded man kicking in a door led the submission from Nashville photographer Chris Hollo. "The Door Project began as an idea on a return flight. It occurred to me that you never really know what to expect when you answer the front door." The concept tickled me. Having spent the first half of my life in the suburbs of London, I could relate, but as a resident of New York City I have a techno-tune video intercom and a doorman (whose intercom ring is reminiscent of an 80's novelty car horn) at the entrance to my apartment building, and a spy-hole at my front door. As aCurator, I sometimes crave a bit more humour in the submissions, so I thank Chris for helping start the new year with a dose thereof.
I was really pleased when Chris told me that he is an adjunct at Nashville State Community College and he references aCurator in one of the classes he teaches, Special Topics, a project photography class where the students get to declare a project, write up a project statement and then spend the semester working on it before exhibiting it publicly. You can see some of his students' work here.
