On April 1 2019, I set myself a task. Most people get involved with #Project365 a way to document a whole year through photographs. Yes, it does that but they would normally start their 365 on January 1st.
April 1st was a good day for me to start this. It was the start of a new month, it’s an easy date to remember and also the first, normally shitty, quarter of the year is now over.
For me, this wasn’t even about documenting the year, however, I suspect that as time goes on, that will happen. I take photos all the time. But, for the past while have been pretty terrible at sharing them online. If I don’t share them, who is ever going to see them? If I don’t share them, how the hell will I every get better at photography.
It’s a habit, a way of seeing things in differently. We all get into a routine. We get up, go to work, come home, get dinner.. the usual. We go to the same places, we do the same things. Unless you’re a 100% freelancer or have a nomadic lifestyle, that’s it, most days will tend to be the same kinda thing, which I hate I might add.
To overcome this, and to make myself share my photography, I’m doing this #Project365 as best I can.
As this is a visual project, I’m sharing everything on Instagram. I’m quite aware though that this isn’t a platform I own. If things go belly up, I still want to have my own platform. That’s one of the reasons that I, and everyone else, should have their own space on the internet. I have all the photographs, I can add them all here. But, again, the idea behind this is to get my work out there, make myself get it out into the world, whatever the response may be.
I’d love for you to let me know what you think.
