A GROUP of 24 photographers who met a decade ago will be reuniting for the 10th year to showcase their photos from the first 24 hours of 2013.
Archant Suffolk’s Sarah Lucy Brown and her former classmates from Central Saint Martin’s formed 24photography on leaving college and vowed to exhibit each year - no matter where their individual career paths took them.
The idea is simple: 24 photographers, documenting the first 24 hours of every New Year for 24 years. Each individual is tasked with capturing a single moment within their allotted hour, creating a unique collection of images linked only by time.
And Sarah Lucy was this year given 7am. So bright and early on January 1 she headed to Felixstowe and captured this atmospheric shot on the beach.
Claire Spreadbury, founder of 24photography, said: “The exhibition is going from strength to strength and now in our 10th year we’ve really developed an identity and feel that we’re an established part of London’s art calendar.
“New Year’s Day is an exciting time of the year, and we hope that 24 captures some of that excitement.”
Six prints from the project will be auctioned off in aid of Hope and Homes for Children, an international charity working to ensure that all children have the chance to grow up in the love of a family. They will go under the hammer on the night of the private view at a special event at Morton’s Club, just a stone’s throw away from the exhibition in Berkeley Square.
The exhibition opens on Thursday, February 28 until Saturday, March 23 at Berkeley Square, Mayfair, London. The show is open 9am to 5pm daily, admission is free.
