A Year In The Life Of...
A Year In The Life Of… is a community photography project designed to record a year in the life of a town or place through 365 photographs, one for each day of the year, taken by the residents. The project shows the different views, styles and feelings that each photographer brings in, with photographs featuring people, events, places etc… that are around them. The project captures hidden scenes too, the activities that not everyone notices or gets a chance to see, creating a diary for today and a record for the future. A Year in the Life is meant to motivate people to get involved with something they are passionate about: the area they live in.
PATRONS: Lady Moira Swire | Bill Croydon, CBE
“Well done you for an imaginative way of involving the people of our part of Kent in recording their lives past and present. Congratulations on your success.” | Lady Moira Swire
“Against all the stresses, strains and burdens of modern life, here is an initiative that focuses on all the good things in the town. (…) Recognition produces feel-good factors and, undoubtedly, fosters loyalty and respect for the town and its people.
I urge you strongly to grasp this opportunity to participate in and to contribute to a project which, as far as I am aware, has been an outstanding success everywhere else it has been held. Don’t spoil the ship for a hap’th of tar! It’s a great community initiative, which can only be good for the town, its businesses and its people. Go for it!” | Bill Croydon, CBE
