See the World in 50 Takes: “Contents: Love, Anxiety, Happiness, and Everything Else”

Chelsea Peretti

We think like the photojournalist (natch): Shoot absolutely everything interesting, from every angle and setting, and from the bigger set you're sure to get a handful of good shots and one that just nails it, the image that wows people and could speak for the whole shoot. Now imagine this on a grand scale — say, 500 photographers from around the world submitting work to a group of professionals. From those, the top 50 photographers are chosen, and from each a single representative image. Say hello to “Contents: Love, Anxiety, Happiness, and Everything Else,” which begins tonight (Thursday), at Rakyo Photo Center, home of an old-timey photo booth and unforgettable openings.
