New Year photography exhibition goes on show

An ambitious photography project which aims to document the first 24 hours of each New Year for 24 years launched its eighth annual exhibition yesterday.

24Photography involves 24 snappers from across the globe recording a single moment of New Year’s Day within an allotted hour under a different theme each year.

The group met in 2004 while studying on a postgraduate photography course at Central St Martin’s in London and includes Sarah Brown who is a staff photographer with the East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich daily the Evening Star.

Photos taken on the theme of ‘candid’ on 1 January this year will make up an outdoor exhibition at Berkeley Square, London, from 24 February to 19 March, open from 9am-5pm each day.

Six prints from the project will be auctioned off in aid of the breast cancer charity Too Many Women.

The photographers aim to keep their New Year’s Day project going for 24 years and have exhibited at a number of locations across London in previous years.
