THE 24 HOUR PROJECT

March 11, 2015


“Imagine 900 street photographers in 312 cities from 72 countries on 6 continents sharing a photo per hour during a 24hour day capturing the essence, complexity and the condition of humanity worldide.“

Last year I discovered the 24 hour photo project. This is an event that takes place across the globe and where you don't need to be a professional to participate. The premise is simple: no matter where you are or which camera you have, you share one picture per hour on the 21st of march.

As easy as that!

I participated last year and let me tell you: it's great! I swear it was really interesting to see how you would force yourself to observe all the little things and wonder if you would have actually noticed them otherwise. Plus it is really cool to see in real time what is happening in all the different cities and if this is still not exciting enough, the organisers host some exhibitions around the globe with these photographs (they would invite you to be part of it, they wouldn't use your picture without permission, don't worry).

Imagínense que un día entero gente del mundo se pone a tomar fotos para documentar lo que pasa en sus ciudades una foto por hora durante 24 horas. 

El año pasado descubrí este proyecto y me encantó la idea de ir por la calle buscando esa foto para contar la historia de esa hora en mi ciudad. Es increíble los detalles que uno nota cuando está atento. 


Cool, eh!?

You still have time to REGISTER and this year the theme to photograph will be “human condition“. 

You can check all the details on the 24 HOUR OFFICIAL WEBSITE or if you want to take a look at what happened last year here is a link to the GALLERY

See you there!!

Este año el evento se va a realizar el 21 de marzo y no hay que ser un profesional para participar. Sólo hay que registrarse en el SITIO OFICIAL y seguir las indicaciones. El tema este año será “condición humana“. Si les interesa pueden ahí consultar todos los detalles y también pueden visitar la galería del año pasado. 

Ah, y les digo que a lo largo del año, alrededor del mundo se organizan exposiciones mostrando lo mejor de estas fotos, así que es un pequeño extra que suena bastante bien, ¿no creen?
