ONE - This project simultaneously explores the similarities and differences between mine and Britney Wharton's photography. Each week we will take a picture on MTWTh before 10 a.m. from wherever we are of whatever we are doing. There are no prompts, no structure, and no rules. Our images will then be combined into a diptych and shared both here and on her blog for the next 52+ weeks.
My image will always be on the left and hers on the right.
SEPARATE - In December 2016 we decided to collaborate on this project because we have similar approaches to photography and wanted to grow as photographers, using each other for motivation, encouragement, and critique. Britney and I became friends during the early stages of a 365-project in 2015 as we learned we shared very similar interests, a surprisingly common background as we grew up an hour from one another, had similar aged children, and photographic styles. She and I both share a passion for the 3-L's (light, life, and love) and aim to capture one, if not all, throughout our images.
MOMENT - Britney and I wanted to start this project as we saw random coincidences within our Instagram posts and asked ourselves what would happen if we did this for a year, how many random coincidences would there be at 750+ miles apart as she still resides in California and I'm in Utah? It may have been a pure coincidence that she and I both joined the same 365-project 2 years ago, but it is not a coincidence how our friendship led us to where we are today. Though our relationship has strictly been online, Britney has been an amazing friend throughout my photography journey and I am so excited to share this project with her. I cannot wait to see where this takes us.
I hope you enjoy our journey as much as we enjoy creating it.
