Photos for ADAY.org

Last week I was invited by my friend Inger Vandyke to participate with her team in a project on ADAY.ORG. The organization chose May 15, 2012 as a day for people worldwide to photograph, “what is close to you – what matters to you?” They will then connect images to images from all around the world to create a unique online experience where photographs will be shared, compared and explored. It is kind of a snapshot in time to be seen by generations to come.

All images will be displayed permanently online for everyone to explore. Some of them will be selected for a book, “A Day In the World”, which will be published in October 2012, others will be shown in  exhibitions around the world. It was a fun project to participate in. My day began in hot and humid Chiapa de Corzo and finished in San Cristobal de las Casas in the cool rain. Geography greatly restricted my ability to photograph many of the things matter to me but I think given the restrictions I came up with some interesting images.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
