International Site Profiles: Space Cadet
In an opinion piece posted recently on the limitations of access to crowdfunding projects, we made an argument for taking the initiative to explore sites that promote photographers from countries and cultures less frequently seen. We're following that post with a series of short profiles that will collectively provide a starting point for this exploration of international blogs, online magazines and pages. We began by looking at Kilele, We Take Pictures Too, Arab Image Foundation, and Greater Middle East Photo. Today we continue with Space Cadet.
Space Cadet, launched in 2011 to introduce new Japanese photography to the international community, is a straight-forward presentation of photographer portfolios and interviews. The site itself is in both English and Japanese, but unfortunately the interviews have not been translated. Portfolios are accompanied by a site link for each artist represented - click the "HP" button next to the photographer's name on their portfolio page - and serve as a way to further explore. It adds new work regularly.
Space Cadet can be found on Facebook.
