On Tuesday May 15th 2012, the Aday.org (www.aday.org) initiative will invite the entire world to participate in the largest and most comprehensive photographic documentation of a single day in human history. Whether an amateur with a mobile phone camera or a professional photographer, Aday.org asks anyone – and everyone – in possession of one of the world’s estimated one billion digital cameras to document their experiences of the day: uploading their images in order to create a visual archive of our lives today.
The images will form the biggest searchable online picture archive of its type, and the most striking photos will be used in a simultaneously-staged global exhibition in October 2012, and feature in a book entitled ‘A Day In The World’ (to be published in November 2012). For the purposes of maintaining this image archive for future generations, hard drives containing all of images from May 15th 2012 will be stored within a secure underground location.
