While I was surfing the internet this weekend I came across a pretty interesting new photography project called The 50 States Project. The states project, run by UK photographer and art photography curator Stuart Pilkington, is comprised of 50 photographers, one from every state and a series of assignments given to the photographers. They are given 2 months to work on the images in whatever way they see fit and then the results are posted on the website. The list of photographers working on the project is a pretty interesting group of people with some of my favorites like Jeremy and Claire Weiss and Brian Ulrich submitting images. Its a pretty good start and should be an awesome project to keep checking up on throughout the rest of the year. Here are some of my favorite images from the first project entitled people.
