The Art of the Personal Project is a crucial element to let potential buyers see how you think creatively on your own. I am drawn to personal projects that have an interesting vision or that show something I have never seen before. In this thread, I’ll include a link to each personal project with the artist statement so you can see more of the project. Please note: This thread is not affiliated with any company; I’m just featuring projects that I find. Please DO NOT send me your work. I do not take submissions.
Today’s featured artist: Dana Hursey
The 14 Days Documentary Project is a collaboration of photography and film with the goal of unifying people through our commonality and shared humanity. This collection of imagery is from the “Great Britain” project and is but a small sampling of the over 600 portraits that Dana created during his “14 Days in Great Britain”.

“14 Days in Great Britain” was as much an emotional journey for me as a physical one. To be touched so deeply by such brief encounters speaks to the heart of this incredible project. -Dana Hursey
