This is post 170 since our very first post in February of this year.
The first post featuring Shelly landing on unexplored shores in Nordic countries.
A post quickly followed by our second post where Shelly explained we are an art collective, continued with a rollercoaster of other posts.
An average of 20 posts a month.
A journey of posts exploring our own artistic selves, looking for influences and the reasons why we shoot what we shoot and are what we are.
Stuckinplastic is more than just a hashtag on Instagram or the random ramblings from Shelly and Me2. Stuckinplastic is looking to define an art collective of like minded photographers, digital illustrators, story tellers and visual artists alike who want to take their work beyond the instant gratification of likes on IG, Flickr, FB or any of the social media we all crave once in a while and share a common goal, passion and understanding.
We want to take our plastic work into the printed walls of galleries, board and bedrooms alike and connect with our audience.
Define our bricked photography as the soup cans of our age.
Stuck In Plastic is not an easy or fast road, it is not an instant movement of the next great picture or awesome effect that blasts us all away like a genie in a bottle of soda.
It is not about the gear, the bricks or the tricks of the trade.
It is about all of that and yet it is soo much more.
It is about finding our artistic selves and meeting new people.
Sometimes we ask too much questions or dive too deep.
It is a long and windy road and we are just at the beginning of this great journey.
A journey you are all part of.
From being a distant reader who enjoys our posts, to some of you walking along and helping define the soup cans with us here on IG and G+ or giving us guidance by walking ahead and being an inspiration for all of us as a distant legend.
We are extremely proud to welcome our third member of the inner circle of the order of the soup cans here at Stuck In Plastic.
A member who doesn't need any long and windy introductions.
