Recently, I saw the lovely person behind i heart photograph speak at SAIC. She was brought by the graduate Photography department’s programming committee. Although everyone was remarkably positive about her various projects (and I, too, love them and am jealous of her prescient eye), I am still weary of calling a blog a curatorial project. Sure, a blog consisting of your fave photos of the moment is a curated project in the way that a mix-tape is, but it’s also not the same thing as Hans Ulrich-Obrist’s Do It.

the print-version of the project

Do It consists in many forms, but the online manual of this commissioned project announces a thematic for the works included. Maybe this is what I don’t see happening on the lovely i heart photograph site – other than the blogger’s taste, nothing else unites the images, however interesting they might be.
