The 12.12 Project was conceived by Tennessee based film photographer Penny Felts, during a period where she felt that her photography had become stagnate and predictable. She wanted to challenge and push her creativity in new ways. She already connected to a worldwide pool of instant film photographers, she invited and selected 11 women photographers whose work she respected and admired to participate on her project. It was then The 12.12 Project was born merging the instant film talents of Penny Felts, Carmen De Vos, Amanda Mason, Kat White, Sarah Seené, Emilie Trouillet, Maritza de la Vega, Emilie Le Fellic, Marion Lanciaux, Rachel Baez, Agafia Polynchuk and Rhiannon Adam.
Every month each photographer chooses a theme, one that challenges each other, pushes each artist out of their comfort zone, and generates creative photographic responses to powerful thought starters. This website is dedicated to the unique results generated from each of the artists in the group. Once the project is finished, a published book and a touring worldwide exhibition will allow these interpretations to be seen by all.
The 12.12 Project is supported by The Impossible Project. You can follow the project on their blog and facebook.
