Each day, one photograph is selected from the Utata group on Flickr to be featured on their website, www.utata.org, along with a short piece of writing inspired by the image. This is a sampler of just some of those stories - some bizarre, some romantic, some inspiring. We hope you enjoy.

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. Utata.org 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.
