Regional press photographer’s 24-year project reaches halfway point

The halfway point has been reached in a 24-year-long photography project which aims to capture the first 24 hours of each New Year.

The 12th exhibition of the 24Photography project features 24 photographers submitting 24 sets of images each year.

Among those taking part is Sarah Brown, a photographer with the East Anglian Daily Times and the Ipswich Star.

The group involved met in 2004 while studying on a postgraduate photography course at Central St Martin’s in London and the project has been running ever since.

An exhibition showing off artwork from the project is now running in Soho Square, London, until Thursday.

This year’s exhibition is being curated by Bridget Coaker, night picture editor at the Guardian.

She said: “When I first heard about 24photography I thought what a great idea, I do hope they manage to keep the momentum going.

“Now in its 12th year this group of dedicated photographers are still going out in all weathers and all hours to capture something that shows something of the first day of each New Year.

“Their commitment to the project is inspiring.”
