Yes! You heard it right! The 4am Project is about to hit Manhattan. This is probably the project’s (and my!) biggest goal to date.
I am so delighted to be able to bring the 4am Project to the heart of New York City.
Times Square will be pumping with energy and will promise some stunning images to early morning photographers who want to capture the exhilarating activity in a 24 hour city.
If you are a New Yorker with an interest in the unusual (and perhaps mild insomnia) come and take part in this innovative global photography project to record and document the world before dawn.
I’m going to be hosting a special event in the beating heart of Manhattan that is Times Square at 4am on October 17th, and I’m inviting bleary eyed photographers on an exhilarating early morning photography walk to capture images of the city that never sleeps.
I hope you can join me and other New York photographers in this extraordinary photo walk at the ‘crossroads of the world’.
The 4am Project is an exercise in global solidarity to encourage the sharing of visual imagery that reflects the world we live in. This is the Project’s second year, and word has spread like wildfire, with people picking up their cameras in over 40 countries across the globe including UK, Brazil, Italy, China, Swaziland, Libya, Germany, Laos and the USA.
It’s a worldwide collaborative experience, aiming to capture a time of day that many people rarely see. At the heart of the 4am project is the aim to bring both photographers and non-photographers together, to create a global community which demonstrates how amazing our surrounding landscapes can be.
Time: 3.45 AM on Sunday 17th October
Meeting Place: Outside the New York Police Station on Times Square
Event ends at 5am, though I suggest it would be a nice opportunity to grab a coffee and meet the 4am Photographers!
Don’t forget your camera!
Tell your friends too!
