Over at the amazing photography site Shutter Sisters, there’s a project going on. It’s called the One Word Project. Every month, they choose a new word and then folks post photos of their interpretations of that word.
This month, to celebrate the release of Everyone Is Beautiful, the One Word is “Beautiful.” And Ballantine Books is giving away four Diana cameras over the course of the month–every Sunday.
I want to say, “It’s going to be incredible.” But guess what? It already is!
Tracey Clark, who put this whole thing together, posted about it on Sunday to the Shutter Sisters community. She wrote, “The book is awesome; perfectly written, insightful, hilarious and cut-to-the-heart tender,” and then she encouraged everyone to “muse on beauty, grab your cameras and see what kind of beautiful you can find through your lens.” Now, already, there are over 300 photos up in the Flickr pool.
