Regional press photographers wanted for ‘unique social experiement’

Regional press photographers are being called upon to take part in a “unique social experiment” involving hundreds of pictures.

The project will see both professional and amateur photographers capture images of Bristol over the course of 24 hours to build a “visual library” of the city in 2017.

Called ‘A Day In The Life’, the scheme will be led by national photographer Mark Waugh on Saturday 19 August.

The images will be uploaded to Instagram throughout the day for viewers to watch before being printed out and transformed into a piece of art by a local artist.

Said Mark: “I love Bristol and its people. There is so much potential to capture some amazing images on the day, pictures that will last for years to come as a snapshot of the city on that particular day. That is the power of photography.”

The project is being run by printer cartridge company Cartridge Save.

Managing director Ian Cowley said: “We look forward to lots of people from Bristol getting involved and contributing their pictures across the day. The end result will be a document that will be of real worth now and in future.”

    This is by no means unique: similar 24-hours-in-Bristol photography projects have been held several times in recent years. Such exercises have also been staged on many occasions in other cities by publications and arts/community organisations.
