The Ones We Love

The Ones We Love is a project highlighting young and talented
photographers from around the world. Each artist contributed six
photographs of the person(s) who is most important to them, taken
outdoors in a natural setting. The goal of the website is to portray
the people who are loved, cherished, and inspirational to these
artists, and also showcase the differences and similarities in the
photographs each of them took within the same guidelines.

There's some amazing work in this vaguely collaborative project. I don't know who put this all together, but it's a bit of an over run idea. Granted, I love alot of the work that's on here, and I like how some of these short series' can get incredibly intimate with their subject, which is kind of hard with someone you're not incredibly close with on a lot of levels.

Some of these are entirely contrived piles of garbage that seem to want to showcase their current love obsession. That's all fine and dandy, but the photos that come from that are a way bit detached, and really not that interesting.

The series I posted is from a girl named Anna-Lisa Liiver.

I really really love this photo project. I sent the guidelines to a few photographer friends of mine, but I'm not sure if they've submitted anything. It's good to see others are drooling over it too.
