Storytelling in Flickr

Creative minds are drawn to flickr, and spawned some interesting new forms of expression.

 

* Andrew Losowsky started a set of images of Doorbells of Florence, where each photo of a doorbell is accompanied by an original short story. This form has been coined "flicktion" (=flickr + fiction) which others have picked up as a way to use images and story together. See photos tagged with flicktion to see more examples.

 

* A flickr group called Visual Storytelling has created a visual form of story in which the entire tale must be told with only 5 images (and no text)-- see the example shown, called The Mosquito.

 

* Six Word Story picks up on Hemingway's rise to the challenge of writing a complete story in only six words. In this version, a story must be told in one image and six words.

 

* Missio Stencil Story is "an interactive, choose-your-own-adventure story that takes place on the sidewalks of the Mission district in San Francisco" told via a flickr photo set

 

* Shutterhack, a photographer from Malaysia, combines stunning vivid photos with selected poems.
