The Photography of Cole Rise

The photography of Cole Rise is simply breathtaking. It is interesting to see this level of fine art on Flickr and it makes me wonder how much longer before you truly see Flickr breaking the best new young photographers into what has been in the past a very walled off garden of the New York Contemporary Art scene.

Can Flickr represent a new distribution model in the attention scheme of things and allow true artistic vision and talent to rise above the politics and control of the handful of individuals who control the fine art galleries of New York or currate the top museums of the world?

Cole Rise is among the best I’ve seen on Flickr. He publishes on Flickr as antimethod. Here is his website.
