I created, led and participated in a photography project in 2017. It’s called “twelve months” – because it was a monthly challenge, over the course of all of 2017. I’m pretty sure you’re glad I explained the name. Would’ve been hard to guess otherwise 😉

With a group of photographers and photo enthusiasts, I set out to take photos for a specific topic every month. I would decide on the topic and everyone, including me, would have 30ish days to go out and shoot something to represent the theme.
The project didn’t go as I anticiptaed if I’m honest. I thought I would be more involved in creating a community and offer a place to learn from each other and exchange ideas. In the end, I do think I managed to find a group of people that enjoyed the project and I made some new friends that I otherwise probably would have never gotten in contact with, but I did underestimate the admin work a photography project would require.

Here are the photos I took for the project over the past year:
