(Too Hard to Keep) is a growing archive of photos the public deems ‘too painful to live with any longer.’ This repository is a place for photographs, photo-objects, image-ephemera, and digital files to exist without being destroyed. Participants may dictate whether the photographs submitted to the archive may be exhibited image-face-up (public) or image-face-down (private).
Submissions are exhibited without attribution and without accompanying stories. Site-specific installations continue to be curated out of the expanding collection.
Physical photographs, photo albums, or any other physical submissions can be sent via post to:
212 w. Thomas St
Tampa, FL 33604
Digital photos can be emailed to:
Cell phone images too hard to keep can be texted directly to:
