The 12.12 Project was conceived by Tennessee based film photographer Penny Felts, during a period where she felt that her photography had become stagnate and predictable. She wanted to challenge and push her creativity in new ways. Already connected to a worldwide pool of instant film photographers, she invited 11 women to participate. The women she selected were photographers whose instant photographs she respected and admired, and The 12.12 Project was formed.
Every month each photographer chooses a theme, one that challenges each other, pushes each artist out of their comfort zone, and generates creative photographic responses to powerful thought starters. This website is dedicated to the unique results generated from each of the artists in the group.
Once the project is finished, a published book and a touring worldwide exhibition will allow these interpretations to be seen by all.
The 12.12 Project is proud to be supported by the wonderful people at The Impossible Project, without whom we could not continue to shoot our instant film and inspire others to do the same.
