    Today I Met: The Everyday Projects

    To see photos from daily life from around the world, explore these Everyday Projects: @everydayafrica, @everydayusa, @everydaymiddleeast, @everydayasia, @everydaylatinamerica, @everydayiran, @everydayjamaica, @everydayeasterneurope, @everydaysrilanka, and @everydayegypt.

    This weekend on the festival grounds of Photoville, a public photography exhibition in New York City, the contributing photographers of the Everyday Projects are meeting each other for the first time. “This feels like the ultimate modern moment,” says writer Austin Merrill (@austin_merrill), who along with photographer Peter Di Campo (@pdicampo) co-founded Everyday Africa (@everydayafrica) in 2012. “We’ve all been talking together for so long from across the world that to finally bring this incredible group together in person is electrifying. It’s like we are already family. There was no ‘let’s get to know each other’, we just hit the ground running.”

    Austin and Peter’s project has become a global phenomenon, with international photographers creating and contributing to Everyday editions in their own regions. Austin says, “The Everyday Projects give important perspective and context to what life is like for people around the world, outside of just the bad things that happen.”

  3. Abigail & Jim’s Engagement session in Rye and Portsmouth, New Hampshire. We had an amazing day shooting along New Hampshire’s coastline, a top construction equipment and the quite shaded back yards of Portsmouth. Shot on a mix of Medium format Kodak Portra 400, Kodak Tri-x 400 and Nikon digital. Congratulation’s to the two of them!

  5. My buddy Alex prepping the transfer of some 10,000 bees into what will hopefully be their new home, a top-bar hive, built by his fellow homesteader Zach and himself in Falmouth, ME. Bees are a unique animal, so much of a bee keepers job is maintaining a calm non-verbal discourse between themselves and the bees.
