Over fifty-two weeks some of the world’s leading contemporary photographers created challenges for members of an online community called 52 by 52. This book aims to showcase a small selection of the 1300+ images submitted to the project and tries to give a flavour of the diverse work created in a plethora of styles and formats.
The 52 by 52 project aimed to stretch its members creatively, encouraging experimentation in terms of approach as well as aesthetics. Whilst taking part in the project members could gain an insight into how a group of well-respected photographers approach their art, as often their challenges were reflective of their own practice.
52 by 52 makes no profit from the venture and one pound of the sale price for each book (printed, eBook or PDF) goes to www.photovoice.org
The book features challenges from Nadav Kander, Simon Roberts, Edward Burtynsky, Christopher Anderson, Harry Benson, Gerd Ludwig, Olivia Arthur, Terry O’Neill, Roger Ballen, Donald Weber, Alec Soth, Chris Floyd, Benjamin Lowy, Palani Mohan, Marcus Bleasdale, David Maisel, Phillip Toledano, Simon Norfork, Martin Parr, David Chancellor, Peter Dench, The Caravan Gallery and many others.

52 by 52 was an online community who respond to a weekly challenge set by an accomplished guest photographer. Each week the 52 by 52 members interpreted the photographer’s challenge in whichever way they felt appropriate and submitted a photo to a Flickr group.
