The 100

About the Project

The 100 is a year-long collaborative photography project.

Over the course of 2012, we’re giving 100 disposable cameras to 100 people aged between 1 and 100, inviting each of them to capture one week in their life.

Through the site, we’ll share the images and build up a picture of 100 different lives.

The project launched on January 1st, 2012. We’re just coming to the end of searching for people to take part, and we’ve started publishing the cameras which have returned.

You can see all of the people who have been selected so far, including those who have returned their cameras.

You can also take part in the project by capturing a week in your own life, during The 100 Week, which takes place October 1-7, 2012.

The project is curated by Matthew Knight, founder of the Disposable Memory Project, another photography project using disposable cameras, where people leave cameras across the world to be found and returned, sharing the images on the website http://disposablememoryproject.org.

Over 13,000 applicants have requested to take part, and The 100 have been selected from across the world, with varying backgrounds and life-stories.
