In 2011 David curated 52 by 52, a year-long series of photo-challenges set by renowned photographers. Every week 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 52 by 52 and the support of the group was helpful to spur members on throughout the year.
Weekly challenge projects are nothing new for sure but we believed what made this one unique was the thought-provoking challenges set by a varied range of professional photographers who came from a wide range of photographic disciplines. It was chance to gain an insight into how well respected photographers approached their art as often their challenges were reflective of their own practice.
