This week on Hit The Streets I talk with the founder of the 24 Hour Project, Renzo Grande. Find out all there is to know about this fun project and how you can get involved this year!
Renzo Grande is a photographer who focuses his passion and sensitivity to document daily street stories with a sense of perpetual iconic emotions. Originally from Lima – Peru and currently based in New York City he started his visual documentation in 2010.
Renzo’s photos have been exhibited in Germany, Iran, Finland, Italy, Venezuela, Peru, United States and Mexico. He is also the founder of the 24HourProject, a worldwide documentary of the Human Condition as captured by local photographers.
The 24HourProject connects emerging photographers, aspiring photojournalist and visual storytellers from every city of the world to document humanity and make a difference by raising awareness about global issues and empowering NGOs.
This year's edition of the project is on April 7th and registrations are already open (free) at www.24hourproject.org
Within the website photographers will find a participants page which details how to be document and share your photo one per hour during 24 hours. You will also find an ambassador list which could give guidance to the participants doing it for the first time.
In 2017, there were 3,940 participants from 840 cities on 112 countries. This year the project will do a kickstarter campaign to have a Photo Book with all profits going to Human Trafficking Survivors and a Refugee Camp. The book contains stories, testimonials and photos as the world was documented during 24 hours from the point of view of local photographers.
