New project: CHRONICLE 90

I’m looking at a backlog of ideas, a backlog of posts and a backlog of projects. I just can’t seem to get myself into gear lately. Ten thousand voices pulling at each other in my mind, competing for focus and time in the spotlight. A couple of hours ago I had to face my very first—EVER—data corruption issue with an important Logic Pro project : audio files suddenly rendered unusable out of the blue, smack dab in the middle of recording. I’d never seen anything like it but a quick search surfaced this as an ongoing issue, as far back as 2005. Well, yay.

But I didn’t fire up the blog to bitch and moan...what I really want is to mention a new KAGE project we launched a couple of weeks ago: CHRONICLE 90. Instead of fixing ourselves a monthly target and publishing several stories as part of a single issue, we’ve embarked on a 90-day journal. That is, one post per day for the next 90 days (seven photographers). The challenge of course is in the material: we won’t be shooting the sublime and the epic every single time. Each entry instead becomes a personal snapshot of where we are, what we’re doing, how our lives are unfolding. Normalcy, wherever it may lead us.

Our homepage has been altered to display those daily stories but it’s all in the blog as well, under the chronicle90 category.
Check it out if you get a chance :)
