12 by 12

In 2015 David curated 12 by 12, a year-long series of photo-challenges set by renowned photographers. Every month a new challenge was issued and group members were invited to interpret it by submitting a photo to a Flickr Group.

The project aimed to stretch its members creatively, encouraging experimentation in terms of approach as well as aesthetics. Community was an important aspect of 12 by 12 and the support of the group was be helpful to spur members on throughout the year.

Photo-challenge projects are nothing new for sure but we believed what makes this one unique is the thought-provoking challenges set by a varied range of professional photographers who come from a wide range of photographic disciplines. It is chance to gain an insight into how well respected photographers approached their art as often their challenges are reflective of their own practice.

The project follows on from the success of our two previous projects 52 by 52 and 26 by 26 which attracted some of the world’s leading contemporary photographers including Edward Burtynsky, Carolyn Drake, Nadav Kander, Steve McCurry, Terry O’Neill, Martin Parr and Alec Soth.
