I am so pleased and excited to make this blog post. We're a day later than we planned, but better late than never, eh? Elizabeth and I are happy to announce (drum roll please) our first ever collaborative project, Common Places Different Spaces. We decided about a month ago that we needed to be challenged photographically, but wanted to stay within our comfort zones which, when you're both not fond of shooting in public or photographing people, it's definitely a challenge! The basis of our project is to shoot one common, every day place each week but in our respective cities (Elizabeth's in Portland, I'm in Salt Lake City) to show the differences and similarities between our cities, our places, and ourselves as photographers, and to up the ante, we're only shooting with film cameras: various Polaroids, K1000, Holga, Nikon FM, etc. No digital here. We plan to update our blog and Flickr photostream weekly, so please check back often. We'll also share each update on our personal blogs too. These images below are just a sampling from our Library theme this week, and if you like what you see, please visit our blog for more.
