Photographic projects are at the center of Utata. We run a series of ongoing challenges for our nearly 18,000 members, encouraging them to stretch their skills and imaginations. Each year we also initiate one large overarching project. In 2007, we chose a project that would demonstrate the depth and breadth of the talent of our members. We selected half a dozen broad categories of work and watched with delight and amazement as the photographs were submitted. Since the project was about our membership, we decided to call the project 'The Utatan'. This book is the Editor's choice of submissions to that project.


About the Author

Markybon Worldwide
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. As a group we are continuously evolving; Utata is more of a process than a final product. Photographic projects grew organically out of the group's wide-ranging discussions. In order to provide an appropriate setting for those projects it was necessary to create an entirely new entity. is that entity. It is our attempt to retain the intimacy of the original salon while expanding to include new voices, new perspectives, and new ideas. Our goal is to become a semi-civil online tribe devoted to creating and promoting good art.

It's a fantastic body of work, and the book, from concept to layout to finished product, is quite special. I'm so proud to be a part of the book. And proud to be a Utatan, of course.
