I just signed up for this show, and I think you should too!
A Million Little Pictures: Documentary (website)
During the summer of 2009, one thousand artists from around the world will document their lives in 24 frames using a simple disposable camera with a flash. On September 25th, 2009, an exhibition housing over 24,000 photographs will be constructed to take you on an adventure through the lives of these thousand artists.
What is it?
One thousand people from around the world will document their lives in 24 frames using a disposable camera. An exhibition will be held showing over 24,000 photographs.
Who should participate?
In a nutshell: you. We’re looking for people with different cultures, ethnicities, geographic locations, and lifestyles. This is for anyone. You do not have to consider yourself an “artist” to participate.
An exhibition in my city?
We’ll be organizing an exhibition at a gallery in the city that has the most participants.
The goal is simple.
We are looking for a thousand people from around the world to document their lives. All you need to do is sign up and we’ll send you a disposable camera and a welcome letter. Then, go out and document your life in 24 frames. When you’re done, visit your local one-hour photo place, develop the film, and then send us back the prints to be included in the exhibition.
The deadline to sign up to receive your camera is July 1st, 2009. $18 for US residents, $22 for everyone else. If you’re interested, you can SIGN UP HERE. If you join, you can add me as a friend here! 🙂
