A new photograph every third day, for a year.
In 1986, I committed myself to a photography project I called The One Hundred Prints Project. It was, in essence, a motivational construct. I was embarrassed about not having any finished prints to show people when they asked to see my photographs. Being known as "a photographer," it was too revealing to have nothing to show them. I wrote about this project in LensWork #21 and also in my book Letting Go of the Camera. If you are interested, the original article is in this PDF.
This project —The New 100 Prints Project — was inspired by the first one. Again, it is a bit of a motivational construct. By committing myself to post a new image every third day for a year, I hope to push myself to create 100 new images. "Artistic discipline" is a bit of an oxymoron, but being an artist and not producing work is just plain moronic. I appreciate your helpful scrutiny (i.e., visiting this website) in this.
Why should you be interested in this project? Good question. Taking inspiration from my Vision of the Heart podcasts, I thought others might just be interested in some of the thinking behind the photographs. I loved Ansel Adams book Examples, and this is sort my homage to his contributions. Hence, the inclusion of short text and the somewhat more elaborate audio commentary that accompanies each image.
Oh, yeah, and I hope you enjoy the photographs.
Update, Jan 2009: Well, because so many of you have requested it, here is some purchasing information about prints from this project. Thanks!
Update, Apr 2009: Custom folios — you pick the 5, 10, or 15 prints you want!
