About the Book
The word Disconnect (meaning: to unplug or go offline) has become a ubiquitous term used in our everyday modern lives.
Technology has allowed for new connections, access to people and places all over the world, while simultaneously distracting us from the present moment. This conflict poses the question: How does our online socializing equate to more human connection and within this duplicity, what broader meaning might we find in the word Disconnect?
Seeing Collective (SeeC) was created to foster community and a supportive network within the photography industry. We are not only a resource for knowledge, but an inclusive space for creative feedback and artist development. OurBrooklyn-based artist group has created opportunities for emerging photographers to connect and exhibit their work through photo shows, print publications and web features we've produced and curated. Our conversation series, Photo Café: Talks on Photography in partnership with BKC, invites outside professionals to present on specialized topics in an effort to grow and further educate our community. Through our dynamic programming and inclusive artist platform, we aim to create a more equitable industry while challenging the status quo.
