Happy Birthday CONSCIENTIOUS – “a weblog about fine art photography (and more) – 5 years young!

Hats off to colleague Joerg M. Colberg, photographer, curator, author (and more)!

His influential blog CONSCIENTIOUS was launched 5 years ago this week, ahead of the curve. Named one of American Photo‘s “Innovators” in its first annual roundup of the innovators who are changing the art and business of photography (2006), Colberg was heralded as a part of “…A new generation of thought leaders has emerged to give photographers and photography fans new avenues of information.”

Conscientious is an amazing resource, rich with ideas and images. Make reading this blog part of your routine and you will be stimulated and grow!

Another of Colberg’s recent efforts, currently on view at Jen Bekman Gallery:

A New American Portrait” is a group exhibition of photographs featuring artists at the vanguard of contemporary portraiture in America.

Artists featured in this exhibition: Christine Collins, Jen Davis, Ben Donaldson, Amy Elkins, Peter Haakon-Thompson, Todd Hido, Alec Soth, Brian Ulrich and Shen Wei.

Co-curated by Jen Bekman and Joerg Colberg, editor of the fine art photography blog Conscientious, the exhibition will be on view from June 22 – August 3, 2007 at the Jen Bekman Gallery, 6 Spring Street, New York City.
