100 Images Project

As I was looking at some of the other selections for this week's Editor's Choices on the NAPP site, I came across another photographer who had a striking picture of a man with a bright yellow head dress. I went to his website and began looking around at some of his other work. There, I found the 100 Images Project that he is doing with his friend. Each one takes a picture the same day at roughly the same time, 100% independent of each other, and they post them side by side to create a 100-image portrait of Chicago. Even though they are in the same city, they don't tell each other what theme or subject they are focusing on and it's interesting how divergent images can say something about similarities and differences when juxtaposed on one page.

It's a fascinating project that I would love to try sometime. I think it could certainly work across cities, states, and even countries to offer a unique perspective on life. Anyone interested in doing something like this?
