I’d like to revive the summer photography assignment, something we did when I was co-organizing the Brooklyn Photo Salon. This summer’s assignment: YOUR BLOCK. I chose this assignment because it’s close by (no excuses!) and if you’re like me, it’s something you’ve been meaning to focus on for awhile – who and what we see everyday are often easiest to overlook. Plus every good photo project needs to push you just a little outside of your comfort zone 😉
Everyone is free to participate in this assignment – from amateur to professional photographers. I chose photography not only because it is my first love but because it’s very accessible to everyone these days. You can use your iPhone, your DSLR or your large format film camera – but use it well. By the end of the summer you should think about selecting 10-20 images that make up a cohesive photo essay. We’ll gather in the fall to look at everyone’s images. If you are posting photos online throughout the summer, tag us (@nycvisionaries) in them so we can follow you along in your journey.
