Hi team! My name is Victor, this is Dodge&Burn, and we are Gawker's newest bastard child. D&B is an image-based site that will, in Susan Sontag's words, "participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, [and] mutability."
While I will continue to shoot things like Donald Trump's hair and horsehead blowjobs for Gawker, I will primarily be over here at Dodge&Burn capturing the mundane and the magical, the sad and the uplifting, and whatever you all help us put together (as long as there are not too many cats). Like all of Gawker Media's sites, Dodge&Burn is on the new Kinja platform, which is ideal for a photo site. While we will use D&B to share new photos with you, we invite you to share your photos with us as well. Post them in the comments. Use our new photo annotation functionality (here is as great example). Create Kinja sites of your own to post photos—you might find them shared over to D&B and Gawker. And when there are glitches, as there sometimes are, send a note to the help desk or please feel free to email me here.
Remember: less photoshopping is more, stealing souls can be done respectfully, and of course, if you have a picture of it, it must have happened. So, fire of up your cameras (or smart phones), climb a tree, hide in a closet, or sneak back stage and start snapping.
Note: If you want to use any of our images online, feel free, just make sure to credit me, Victor G. Jeffreys II, and Dodge&Burn.
