What are you in pursuit of?

Artists are powerful. Collectively, a force to be reckoned with.

That’s why Getty Unshuttered is asking what you are In Pursuit of? What drives you? What are you fighting for? Show us! We want to celebrate your images online and at the Getty Museum.

Post your In Pursuit of images in the Getty Unshuttered app or tag us @gettyunshuttered or #unshuttered on Instagram. We’ll be selecting images to showcase at the Getty Museum in 2021.

Designed to inspire creativity and promote social good

Getty Unshuttered is a free photo sharing app from the Getty Museum. It’s a positive community for teens to share their passion for photography and social justice advocacy. A place to inspire each other and grow as artists.

For educators, Unshuttered provides lesson plans and digital resources designed for high school teachers to inspire their students to explore the medium and its social impact.

A museum made a photo sharing app?

We did. Why? Because we believe everyone is an artist and we want a place where they can gather, share, and learn. Is it going to compete with big social media apps? No. It’s not meant to. Other apps are not designed specifically for artists. Unshuttered is different. It’s supportive and free. Like and follow other photographers to help them grow, too. Get inspired. Build and share your own portfolio.
