Mobile Photography / Art – Saturday Poetry – She Walks in Beauty by Lord Byron (George Gordon) – Including @24hourproject

Share

In honour of the @24hourproject, a street photography project designed to document streets of the world over a 24 hour period, created by Renzo Grande @aliveinnyc and Sam Smotherman @whittiersam, we have decided to feature a wonderful poem by Lord Byron the most flamboyant, notorious and fashionable of the major Romantic poets of the day.  The poem is entitled ‘She Walks in Beauty’ and I really feel it epitomises the essence of the @24hourproject.

To tell you a little more about the @24hourproject, essentially it began as a personal project to document two different cities for one full day. That same year, other photographers became interested in covering it too and in 2012 the first year, 65 photographers documented 24 cities. The figures gradually increased and this year there are 2,702 photographers, documenting 680 cities. The idea is for each photographer to publish one photograph per hour over a 24 hour period. The project went live on March 19, 2016, it is the same day for all participants, starting at midnight their local time.

Many mobile street photographers that we know and love are covering this event, including Vivi Hanson Sacerdote (London), Laura Peischl (London), Lee Atwell (Seattle, USA), Sheldon Serkin (New York, USA), Cindy Buske (Quebec, Canada), Saskia Howard (King Cross, Sydney, Australia), Ryan Vaarsi (USA), Rob Pearson-Wright (London, UK), Lrh Arquitecto – Luis Rodriguez (Seville, Spain), Paula Broom (Kings Cross, Sydney, Australia)- please let me know of more!

We have published some of the incredible images emerging from the @24hourproject below, as well as this beautiful poem.

StreetWise – 24 Hour Street Project – The Interviews by Sheldon Serkin

Share

We are so delighted to publish this fabulous article and series of nine interviews by Sheldon Serkin to our brand new mobile street photography Column StreetWise here at TheAppWhisperer. This differs from our very popular StreetsAhead Column in as much as that is a Women’s only Collective. StreetWise is open to all and we’re excited to publish more details of that very soon.

(Last year Laura Peischl covered the #24HourProject within her Column, go here to view)

Serkin took part in the third #24HourProject and this year its popularity has really taken off. Not only did Serkin take part but he also contacted a group of photographers who also took part from all around the world and interviewed them. It’s a phenomenal article, we have separated the interviews out into individual posts for ease of reading, you’re going to love this! In this introduction we have also published below three of Serkin’s fabulous images from this project. Over to you…(foreword by Joanne Carter).

“On March 21st, I set out to walk the streets of my city and shoot for 24 hours straight along with many other (mostly) mobile street photographers around the world as part of the 4th Annual 24 Hour Project.

The brainstorm of Sam Smotherman (@whittiersam) and Renzo Grande (@aliveinny), the 24 Hour Project is a worldwide street photography and social media event. Participants are asked to shoot for 24 hours and post a photo each hour on instagram and other social media platforms. The result is an international real-time kaleidoscope of street images throughout the day, a stirring document of the global “human condition”. During the 364 days between editions, Renzo and Sam coordinate exhibits, workshops and panels to spread the word and share the awesome work that results. This year, Renzo and Sam are working on a photobook, speaking with galleries to showcase last year’s edition and working on the development of an app to enhance the experience for future participants.

The project started small  65 photographers in its first year  and has grown over the course of three years to over 2000 participants. I’ve participated since the beginning, and each year I find the sense of interconnectedness between myself and the other participants to be one of the factors that keep me coming back for more. To that end, I’ve asked 9 of this year’s participants to share with us their experiences and favorite photos from this year’s edition. Thanks for reading! “
