A Moment in Time: Photographers All Over the World Will Take Photos at the Same Time on May 2nd

created at: 04/26/2010

Thousands of shutters all over the world will be released at the same moment, creating “A Moment in Time,” a global art project that captures an instant across the planet.

The project is organized by Lens, the photography, video, and visual journalism blog of the New York Times. The magic hour will occur THIS Sunday, May 2nd, at 15:00 Coordinated Universal Time, which is 11:00 a.m. here in Eastern Standard Time, 10a Central, and 8a on the west coast.

“[In] our initial invitation, “A Timely Global Mosaic, Created by All of Us,” … we asked everyone, everywhere, to join in making this worldwide photographic mosaic, with each photographer submitting their one best picture. As guidance, we suggested a few broad topics like arts and entertainment, community, family, money and the economy, nature and the environment, play, religion, social issues and work. And we also suggested that you might find the experience even more rewarding if you do some planning in advance, taking into account how best to represent yourself, and your community, with a single image.”   I actually think I’m gonna participate in this. I have standing plans on Sunday mornings, but I’ll be there, Nikon in hand, trying to look inconspicuous.
