The Brisbane Collective takes on the worldwide 24 Hour Project
On the 19th March, our TBCArtists are preparing to showcase their photography skills for a worldwide 24 hour photography challenge called #24HourProject. We take to the streets of Brisbane to document the Human Condition of Brisbane.
Every hour, a new photograph will be uploaded to our IG for 24 hours! It's gonna be a long day! Be sure to follow our Instagram page: @thebrisbanecollective so you don't miss our coverage.
The 24HourProject gathers street and documentary photographers from around the globe to share in real time as they document the human condition of their city. Photographers share one photo per hour during twenty four hours. Through the 24HourProject’s mission, market and global exhibitions, the project reaches millions of individuals annually showcasing the human connection of images and real live stories.
Document Humanity to Make a Difference. By bringing the 24HourProject world community together and creating partnerships with NGOs, we aim to raise awareness to world human condition issues.
Each participant shares to social media one photo every hour for the full 24 hours of their city following 24HourProject guidelines. The images, theme and content become viral in all social medias giving a live view to the world hour by hour.
After the event, photographer select their best pictures taken during the event and submit their final 24 photos to www.24hourproject.org. Photos then become selected to travel exhibitions and are part of conferences, workshops and photo books.
The 24HourProject was cofounded by two photographers, Renzo Grande and Sam Smotherman, in 2012. The idea began with a personal project to document and compare two different cities for one full day. That same year, other photographers got interested and on the first edition of the project there were 65 world photographers documenting 24 cities.
Last year, 2015, there were 2030 photographers in 650 cities from 101 countries. The global collaboration of the project lead to gallery exhibitions in Finland, Venezuela, Italy, Australia, United States, Iran and Mexico.
