UTATA "is a collective of photographers, writers, and like-minded people who share a compelling interest in the arts. We began (and continue to exist) as a salon-style gathering of photographers who came together on flickr." Interesting projects such as the gorgeous Trains project and the current Utata pays homage, including works reminiscent of Arbus, Man Ray and Wegman.

I'm a orang-utatan. It's a very welcoming community. And very active.

Wonderful photos, but a maddening interface - how about a way to get to the next photo in each subgallery WITHOUT HAVING TO BACKTRACK! (Sorry, I just hate it when such talented visual artists showcase their work in a user-unfriendly setting...)

The publisher very kindly used that image as an example in a blog entry, too, cali. I just about fell over when I saw that!

Of course, I will now never - ever - get a date again, but hey photography is a pretty fun way to spend your time!

I was a little slow loading, by the time I got to the trains project it had already left the station.

My eyes tricked me into reading that as Utada.

superbly supportive community of photographers and artists. the writing is top-class, and the photography lets you linger... what a treat!!
