About 52 by 52
Although the first phase of 52 by 52 came to an end in August 2012 the next part of the project, a set of fortnightly challenges called 26 by 26, started 7th March 2013. To find out more and to become involved in the community please visit: www.26by26.com
What is 52 by 52?
Weekly photo challenges were set by fifty-two accomplished photographers throughout the course of a year. Each week the 52 by 52 members interpreted the photographer’s challenge in whichever way they felt appropriate and submitted a photo to a Flickr group. The project aimed to stretch its members creatively, encouraging experimentation in terms of approach as well as aesthetics.
After fifty-two fantastic challenges set by some of the world’s leading contemporary photographers, submissions to the group are now closed. The way in which the community came together and supported and constructively criticised each others work has been the most satisfying part of the endeavour.
The project featured challenges from amongst others, Nadav Kander, Simon Roberts, Edward Burtynsky, Christopher Anderson, Harry Benson, Gerd Ludwig, Olivia Arthur, Terry O’Neill, Roger Ballen, Donald Weber, Alec Soth, Chris Floyd, Benjamin Lowy, Palani Mohan, Marcus Bleasdale, David Maisel, Phillip Toledano, Simon Norfork, Martin Parr, David Chancellor, Peter Dench and The Caravan Gallery.
For year two of the project we were keen retain many elements that made our first year a success whilst adapting the format to a slightly less frenetic pace and so 26 by 26 was born! The key difference being that the project has fortnightly rather than weekly challenges.
