Birmingham-Beyond, Single Edition Series, Advent 2013
24 photos / 24 hours / 24 days

24 signed, rubber stamped single edition 6"x4" photographs are being released for sale at a rate of one per day for the 24 days leading up to Christmas, with prices starting at GBP45 (for 24 hours) before increasing to GBP65 until the end of the year, and then on 1st January 2014 they will rise to GBP90.

The 24 hours begins at the time the picture is first tweeted, via @elly_clarke. Further announcements will be made via a dedicated Facebook event page: and on Elly Clarke's website:

FIRST PERSON TO TWEET @elly_clarke that they'd like to buy the photo will get it. If you do not use Twitter, please send me an email: ellyclarke [at] An announcement will be made when the print is sold.

The progress of the project and the new locations of the prints when sold are tracked via this Flickr Set and on Elly Clarke's website:

Payment can be made via bank transfer or paypal, or in cash in person if we live close by enough for us to meet. Post and packaging charged at cost.

All photos are taken from my archive of photographs taken over the past three years. The names in brackets are the people I was either with at the time the photo was taken, or thinking about.

This project follows on from other Alternative Funding Projects I have done - including Selling the Old to Make Room for the New, a project I did in 2010 to raise money for a stolen camera, which subsequently was returned to me by the Kreuzberg police. Some prints from this project are still available to buy. You can see them here: and other Alternative Funding projects that you can see on my website:
