Blogday was a project to document a year in text and photographs taken using a mobile phone. At least, it was intended to only last for a year, but ended up going on for much longer than that and became much more about the words than it did about the photographs.
Why did I use a phone camera instead of a more sophisticated one? Because when I started, camera phones were just becoming really common, and their prevalence meant that they offered us a unique opportunity to conveniently and unobtrusively document the things around us in a way that we have never been able to do before. They offer a solution to the loss of social history that digital photography seemed to threaten us with, by making everyone potential historians.
I also hope to show that even with relatively simple digital cameras it is possible to be creative, just like it is with simple film cameras. I hope you’ll drop by every now and then.
