'Local Flavor' Gallery on 'Pictory'
Pictory is a showcase for people around the world to document their lives and cultures. Anyone can submit one large, captioned image to each of Pictory's editorial themes.... Why just one photo? I want you to pick your best image--and, it's really interesting to compare work from different contributors on the same topic. Other sites offer photo essays and bodies of work from one photographer, but I want to help a diverse group of people put together collaborative photo essays.
Pictory is like a crowd-sourced version of the Boston Globe's Big Picture. The photos are gigantic and beautiful and represent the diversity of the world's food. It's really worth clicking through to see the images at full size. I had to reduce the image size here to 500px to fit on SE. [via Kottke]
