This is travel photography -- of
places I've never been; secret places.
I've not been to Paris, but I know what the Eiffel tower looks like.
I've seen it from multiple angles, and I've seen it at night. What I
haven't seen is the laundry room of the apartment complex a mile from
the center of town -- and that's really what I'm interested in -- the
quiet, unknown moments that make up our lives.
I asked twenty-three people scattered around the U.S. to wear their
cameras everywhere and over the next 48 hours I sent eleven text
messages at random intervals asking everyone to take a photo of whatever
was in front of them at that moment.
We worked together like bees -- each doing our little bit, apart from
the others, but producing something greater and, ultimately, understood
by none of us individually.
This is what it looks like in the hive....
