We spoke to co-founder Paul Peterson about starting the project, and what he looks for in a photograph.
one. What inspired you to start Blow Up?Photography has been our passion for a long time. It helps us observe and look at light and colour in new ways…. We want to bring this love of photography into Blow Up and create a print book to inspire people.
two. Why do you think we need a competition like this right now?Photography as an art form is exploding and there is so much available to us. We want to bring all theses amazing photos together and create a network of excited and enthusiastic amateur and professional photographers from all over the world.
three. What are some of the things that you look for in a photograph? Beautiful light, spontaneity, intuition, honesty and depth.
