Collaborative photo projects for people who like excuses to look differently at things:

  • Implementation
  • Ghani’s International Ticket Project. Ghani’s creating a design for a new interface for London’s automatic ticket machines and is asking for photos of such machines from around the world.
  • I remember a wonderfully organised site of road signs from around the world – I can’t find it, but there are heaps of others, and several probably accept submissions.

Any others?

    look at this:
    The Mirror project: pictures of the photographers in reflective surfaces.

    Oh yes! I’d forgotten about The Mirror Project. Last time I saw it was before I had a digital camera and somehow it seems far more interesting now 🙂

    What about the Degree Confluence Project?:

    “The goal of the project is to visit each of the latitude and longitude integer degree intersections in the world, and to take pictures at each location”.

    Now I should have remembered that, shouldn’t I?


    Thanks, Solveig!

    Here’s a new one: Other people’s grocery lists. I’m glad to see that i’m not the only one collecting completely random information

    working on a collective documentation project at the moment so great to come across this stuff – thank you 🙂
