We previously posted a note about The Street Photography Now Project on our Facebook page. We’ve just received an email from them calling for more representation and participation from photographers in Asia. It’s a great project with some great names behind it, so here we go – Go forth Asia, participate and represent!
About The Street Photography Now Project
The Street Photography Now Project is a collaboration between The Photographers’ Gallery, London and Sophie Howarth and Stephen McLaren, authors of Street Photography Now (Thames and Hudson). Each week from 1 October 2010, a leading contemporary street photographer will issue a new instruction, written to inspire fresh ways of looking at and documenting the world we live in. The Project will run for 52 weeks and photographers around the world are invited to upload one photograph in response, to a special Flickr Group. After six days the next instruction will be issued.
See the Take Part section of The Street Photography Now Project website for more details on how to contribute. At the end of the Project one photographer will be chosen who has made the most outstanding contribution to the project across a number of weeks. They will be awarded £1000 of Thames & Hudson books and have their work displayed on The Photographers’ Gallery digital Wall for All.
Instruction #2 was issued by Shanghai street photographer Ying Tang who we previously featured in our Invisible Interviews & Photo Essay.
