Project Infinity began as a 365 – making a picture a day – back in 2008. Now, after ten years, I cannot see it ever coming to an end. Thoughts might change, of course, but “Project Infinity” it most certainly is for the time being …
When I started this thing I had absolutely no idea where it would take me, except that I made some pre-conditions for myself:
a) that I would not plan any shots; I would simply notice what I was seeing, staying spontaneous;
b) that I would throw away all preconceptions about what (I had previously understood) makes for “good” photography;
There have been planned shots, of course. But, on the whole, 3650+ days photography has woven a daily flow of observations and insights into the fabric of life and has changed substantially and forever the way I see the world. It is about spontaneity, with no judgement or preconception. With no rules to constrain me I feel I am able to see without limits, both enabling and enabled by mindfulness. Which does much more than make pictures; it is a way of living that will probably never stop.
