Facedown Photos

Taking photos of people lying facedown on the ground in public is an emerging Internet meme. Facedowns is a photoblog of such pictures. The goal of the bloggers behind it, Lynn and Michael Chealander and Amy Mihyang, is to get facedown photos of themselves in many different countries around the world. Above is one of Lynn Chealander's photos of a facedown from the South Korean side of the Demilitarized Zone.

Those could become incriminating or be used to spread rumors. I could just see someone spreading around the photo here with a description like "soldiers in Korea like to take innocent people and humiliate them for no reason. Look at the one soldier laughing!"

Unfortunately, the internet has made me one cynical bastard.

hi john, thanks for posting info about our project. we've received some interest in submissions, but unlike some other projects that have a similar aesthetic, this is about the journey of 3 specific people.
we credit as many of our photographers as we can. but we're not getting others to lie down, it's us 3 in all of the photos.

our about page has more info on our intentions.
