GURU SHOTS

Screen Shot 2020-04-18 at 8.20.56 PM

For a few years I’ve used an app on my phone called Guru Shots. It has contests in which the members can vote and occasionally those contests are for exhibitions put on around the world. They usually pick about 40 images to be printed and then the rest are exhibited digitally, I imagine in a slide show. Below are some of the images that appeared digitally in exhibitions around the world thanks to spending way too much time and money on the app : P
