Expressions of Humankind (EoH), a Swedish non-profit foundation supporting photography and writing-focused research and education, is asking the world to take a photograph on Tuesday, May 15 as a part of it’s “A Day” project.
A Day is to be a global effort aiming to capture an ordinary day of life on Earth. Some photographs will be selected for books and digital exhibitions. All of the images will be displayed online and “saved for future research and inspiration.”
“We are more aware of each other than ever before in the history of human life. It’s more than a perception these days, now it´s a fact that there are so many different ways to look at the world. Aday.org puts this in focus.”
-singer, songwriter, and producer Robyn
“Everyone participating in this project will be asked to reflect and photograph around three main categories: Home, Work and Connections,” the A Day website explains. “Each category hosts a series of subcategories that will touch on very concrete elements around you as well as on your perception of things.”
Participants will be allowed to upload up to 10 images to the A Day website until May 22.
“I think it’s one of the big advantages of the space stations that we can show the people on the planet that we can do this together,” says European Space Agency astronaut André Kuipers on the A Day website. “Collaboration is very important and that’s why I like it to participate in this fantastic project.”
“We are more aware of each other than ever before in the history of human life,” says singer, songwriter, and producer Robyn on the A Day website. “It’s more than a perception these days, now it´s a fact that there are so many different ways to look at the world. Aday.org puts this in focus. Half of all people on this planet are women, I´m curious to see how we will define ourselves in this experiment.”
