WE ARE A CAMERA (2002)

What is Weareacamera.com?

Weareacamera.com is a photographic archive bringing together daily snapshots from across the globe.

Participants can upload one image per day, stating time, location and comments. Users can then cross reference their own images with other people's to see what else was happening on a chosen day. Users can also leave comments on other people's images, and enter their own images into various top-ten charts.

People are using the project in different ways. Some people are rigidly sticking to a daily diary. Some only take photos of themselves! Others have back catalogued family photos, or giving us an interesting insight into their diverse cultures.
We are a camera gives you a tangential perspective of the world around you, at a very personal level, which is missing from conventional media.
