The Street Photography Now Project is a collaboration between The Photographer’s Gallery, London and Sophie Howarth and Stephen McLaren, authors of Street Photography Now (Thames and Hudson).
Each week since 1 October 2010, a leading contemporary street photographer issued a new instruction, written to inspire fresh ways of looking at and documenting the world we live in.
Over the following six days, photographers from around the world including Hannah Gauntlett were invited to upload one photograph in response, to a special Flickr Group. After six days the next instruction was issued.The project ran for 52 weeks and photographers could participate as much as they wanted. The aim of this non profit making project was to build a global community of photographers exploring the rewards and challenges of documenting public life. All participants could encourage, comment, and respond to the images posted on Flickr.
Limited edition lambda prints are available of all of these images.
