I am finally ready to introduce my new project!
I have been hinting at this project for a while now, and have been thinking about it for even longer.
I am doing a 365 project! For those who have never heard of a 365 project- It’s 365 photographs: one photo a day, every day, for one year. Many photographers take on 365 projects to challenge themselves to shoot more. They sometimes have a theme (often self-portraits), or else are completely random. I have always been intrigued by the idea of doing one of these projects. It is amazing to see how some photographers grow and evolve while doing a 365 (Alex Stoddard is a great example.) I have thought about doing a 365 project for some time now, but couldn’t decide on a theme.
I am calling my 365 project the Postcard Project.
This project was inspired by Parker Fitzgerald. I am IN LOVE with this 365 project he did, and I recommend checking it out. Other photographers have completed gorgeous 365 quote projects, but it was Parker’s version that made me fall in love with the idea.
So my project is that: 365 days of personal work, with a quote attached. I love the quote idea because photographs and words both have a strong ability to stir us emotionally.
Most people only see my fashion work, however, I have a decent-sized collection of personal work that rarely gets shown. I also have a collection of film photographs. I am taking on this project to showcase some of my personal work, as well as to have an excuse to shoot more film (which I love, though it’s so expensive.) The photos used will be a mix of film and digital (I wish I could do the entire project in film, but as I mentioned, cost might become an issue.)
I’m not yet sure how the project will tie in with my blog. I may do a weekly post with the updates, or a monthly post that showcases some of my favourite photographs. If you are interested in following day to day, please do so at one of the following:
I will be providing daily updates to these sites.
So here we go, wish me luck!
