Tumblr Closedown

This is cross posted form my Tumblr:

This is officially my last post here, this was my first.

I will stop actively using Tumblr as of the 17th Dec 2018.

I object to Tumblr’s years of benefiting and gaining trust from the artistic community to then go on and remove and destroy a decades worth of work, archives and culture with impunity.

I have decided not to completely delete my page here, most of what I have posted is not at risk from being removed by the algorithm, and, besides, I am still proud of the tens of thousands of posts I have collected.

Tumblr was the first place I felt truly at home on the internet and I have found many excellent friends and collaborators through it. I am currently working hard to make sure I am following all of you/them elsewhere, preferably with RSS, but with whatever form they find most suits them.

Life goes on and I have been maintaining a blog over on WordPress for many years, it has two parts, one that showcases my own work & history and another that is much more like the scrapbook style of blogging I have been pursuing here collecting and collating things I find.

Both parts of the blog are at paulgreer.net/blog, you are very welcome to come and find me there and explore, I am active most days.

I am also very active on Twitter (@burningfp), Instagram (@burningfp) and Pinterest (@burningfp).

Pages at Facebook (@burningfp),  Ello (@burningfp), Mastodon (@paulgreer) update less frequently, but I am working on it.

I would like to thank everyone that has made using this site the magical, empowering and life changing experience it has been for me, and I wish all of you the very best for the future.

Kind regards,

Paul

Seven Black and White Photos.

Just over a week ago I got challenged by Jess to do the Seven Black and White Photograph challenge.

No context, no explanations, no people, no pets.

So here we are, all done. It was interesting working without the colour because that’s usually my fall back option.

I’m supposed to nominate some people now, which I’m not sure about. If you fancy it, let me know. I’ll pretend it was my idea or something.

“Me & My Lungs”

Watch this amazing film by Chris Price:

“Finally after quite a long wait I can share this.

Me & My Lungs.

An insight into my life and experiences living with Cystic Fibrosis. Being creative, finding a balance and not letting the restrictions stop me from moving forward.

A massive thank you to everyone who worked on this with me. Tim Marriott Lisa Price Al Hodgson Arthur Cox

Please share it and help raise some awareness about Cystic Fibrosis”
