Dasein: An Invitation to Hang is a new photography project that lets you and everyone else exhibit with the pros in NYC.
Chase Jarvis has made a reputation for himself as a major supporter of social networking. He even has his own iPhone app and a book of iPhone photography called The Best Camera is The One That’s With You.

The program will run for a month, and started May 11th. If you’re interested in submitting images, you can do so via the project’s website.
