Every year, I put together a promotional piece to show off the work of Project 52 members and alumni.

This year, I made it big.

11x17 big.

It will be printed at Magcloud on their tabloid product.

And some of the members may purchase it, but it is not a moneymaker; it is an art collection.

And we give it away for free as a PDF. (see below)

Here are three random spreads. (I had to do a random selection because the work is so universally good, that I did not want to have to choose.)

So I want you to get your download below the images and enjoy the work of these marvelous photographers.

Download your copy here, and enjoy the work.

Check out the photographer’s websites; you will be pleasantly rewarded.

I stopped doing P52 last year. I needed a break, and things were changing.

I am rebooting it this summer.

I have rebuilt the assignments, added more contemporary challenges to them, and we will now tackle motion graphics, a bit of video, and, of course, the application of appropriate AI tools to make images that clients want, and we can be paid for.

The class is about creating a sustainable business as a photographer, and we aim to deliver.

More on the Reboot of P52 in upcoming issues.

Oh, and share this with any of your friends you think may like the book.
