The50 States Project looks like a potentially interesting idea:
Each photographer lives in one of the 50 States and during the year long project each photographer will represent the State where they live. Every two months each photographer will be sent an assignment by e-mail, they then have two months to produce one image in response. The images must represent both their style and the State in which they live.
The first challenge, “People”, has been posted, including the two photos included here. I definitely felt from the guy above, especially after our the big snowstorm last week. I’m looking forward to more later.
