365 days - a photo project starts on June 1.
five years ago I did my 365 days project: For one year I took (or selected) one photo each day and added the major headline of a German newspaper as the title. It was a great project for reasons I describe below. I would like to start te project again. But not just for myself but with as many of you doing the same project as possible. What do you think?
My reason to start the 365 days project originally was simply to get a visual reminder of all the things that happen or seemed worth taking a picture of during one year. Because usually we feal a year rushing bye, hardly remembering how full of remarkable things our life was during this one year.
The reason to start this project together with as many people as possible goes even further: to allow a glimps on the planet we all live on through the individual eyes of people from different countries and continents, with different cultures, traditions and environmental conditions.
To me - this project would be a translation of the reason why we are all love couchsurfing: because we are curious and feal connected to other people in the world - regardless of nationalities, gender, age or education – because there is more that connects us than separates us. Not the impression one might get by watching the news or reading the newspaper headlines.
What do you think? We will start on June 1. Photos taken with the mobile phone are as welcome as with any other camera. And which daily newspaper one choses is up to every ones choice.
We initiated a platform to post the photos together and will make a photo exhibition in each city of the participants with all the works when we are done next year.
