Museum of SL Photography

Callipygian Christensen sent me an invite to a seemingly new arts venue, the Museum of SL Photography.  Located in the Fashionista sim, it’s a quasi-reproduction of the Guggenheim museum in New York City:

The round, open interior makes for a great SL viewer experience.  Stand in the middle of the room and simply circle your viewer around the different levels of photos, easily able to zoom in on the pieces you want to inspect more closely:

Only 2 of the museum’s 6 levels are filled at present, but what’s there is quite good…and there’s plenty of room to grow:

Photographers on display are Callipygian Christensen, Monroe Snook, Keith Extraordinaire, Cienega Soon, Kee Llewellyn, Trinidad Anatine.  It’s a strong combination of styles in a neutral setting, presented by some real talents.  

My only complaint – the prim-built replicas of avatars (in the “Away” setting, all hunched over) are really tacky and detract from what should be a space that inspires creativity and appreciation for those who have found their own creative voice using this exciting medium.   But don’t let that stop you from looking around!

  1. Not to be confused with the original Museum of Second Life Photography owned by Shoshana Epsilon at secondlife://Steiger/167/201/118 🙂

  2. The “tacky” avatars were put out by a jokester. They are not a part of the museum and were quickly removed. So glad you enjoyed it.

    We have just added new work by Ahmad Hosho, Cala and Miss Oh.
