Pic(k) of the week 11: BEHIND BARS - 24 HOUR PROJECT DUBAI

As the preparation for this years 24 HOUR PROJECT, a challenging non-stop 24 hr shoot is in full swing, I like to blog a typical image which we would love to see appear during April 1st event! More info about the 24 hr project at the end of this blogpost!

In behind bars, I wanted to symbolize the problems women still face in some countries when it comes to human rights...

For the ones that are not sure, the image is a shot of a poster in a closed shop window. 

Image details:
  • NEW Fujifilm X-T20 with the XF 35mm f2 lens
  • ISO 6400, 1/20s, f5.0
  • RAW development in Lightroom CC using the Classic Chrome camera calibration profile

As stated at the beginning of this post, on April 1st, I'll be hosting the 24 HOUR PROJECT in DUBAI. 

In short the 24 HR Project is a yearly worldwide 24 hr non-stop photoshoot, which gathers Street and Documentary photographers from around the globe who share in real time images documenting the Human condition of their city.  

All photographers upload minimum one image per hour on social media; preferable Instagram, but Facebook and Twitter or fine as well. Images need to be shot on the day itself.

You don't need a fancy camera to participate, a camera phone will work just fine! Last year 2785 photographers in 718 cities from 107 countries participated. 

Worldwide the event will start on Saturday April 1st at midnight (0000am) and will run till Saturday April 1st 2359pm. For the suspicious ones, no it is not an April fools'!. I've volunteered to be the ambassador for the project in Dubai.
