Since I’ve begun posting about “The Early Hours photo project” there’s been a lot of interest - not only in what we’re brewing up, but also in participating. I was intentionally vague about the details of my plan - to build suspense - but did not anticipate people asking to join! Since I am still pursuing the original project, but love the idea of having anyone participate that wants to, I feel the need to explain what I’m thinking a little more. | So, the original plan moves forward unchanged. I’ve been sending cameras and a few tees or stickers to artists, musicians, creatives, friends, night owls, and strangers that I think will make a cool collection of photos. The common thread between them is that they live a large portion of their lives in “the early hours”, and they have been directed to fill the cameras with a view into that part of their lives, whatever that may entail. They’ve all stuck out to me for different reasons, nothing in particular makes them “fit” the project other than their lifestyles. I will be publishing a series of books with a curated selection of photos from each of these rolls, with the first out by Summer 2014. The number of artists per issue will be limited to give each more spotlight, and editions will be limited to copies for participants and just enough to sell to cover the camera, developing, and publishing costs. I am still sending out packages, and have enough out for 3-4 books so far. I will post the entirety of the rolls (maybe minus the books flicks) somewhere online for everyone to see. This is as much as I know so far about this project. CONTINUED ON NEXT POST..
