A couple of years ago I undertook my Flickr 366 project – one photo a day for a whole year. It was more challenging than it sounds, and encouraged me to break away from photography being something I forced myself to do and instead become more observant in my everyday surroundings, noticing angles, frames and content in other ways.
Anyone that undertakes a daily, year-long project (whatever it is) I have respect and appreciation for. Lorraine Loots has taken this notion of a daily challenge or task and really stepped it up, not just taking a photo, but creating a miniature painting every single day for a year.
The project started on 1st January 2013, but has continued well into 2014 albeit with a slightly different approach.
But then I just started thinking, what if I don’t stop…
It has transitioned from people booking sentimental dates and making suggestions for that date’s painting, to a year of Cape Town themed images that celebrate Lorraine’s home town designation as World Design Capital 2014.
Each one is intricately detailed and rather beautiful, a few of my favourites are below.
