The 12:00 Noon Project is a global photography project aimed at opening the public's eyes as to what life is like across the globe. My goal is to put a camera in the hands of people all over the globe and document what they see. At around twelve o clock every day they will be asked to take one picture using either a disposable camera or a digital camera, capturing what it is like in the environment they live in. When they are done, they will either send the camera back for developing or send the images back via email. I will sort through the thousands of photos to select the most breathtaking images that capture 12:00 across the globe. My goal is to open people's eyes and let them see that the world they see is not the only world that exists.

I currently have participants in Chile, Albania, Mexico, Singapore, New Zealand, England, Oklahoma, California, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Spain, Italy, and the list is growing! We encourage you to participate in this project so it can grow as large as possible!

Risks and challenges

It will be challenging to find 500 people to send the cameras to, as well as get all the film back and develop it, but if all goes well, this will be a remarkable way to capture what the world looks like through so many people's eyes.
