Picture this, one world By Adam Berk
Have you ever watched a glorious sunset? Have you ever thought about the fact that while you watch the sun dip into the ocean to end your day, someone else is watching it rise over a field to start theirs? What better way to unite people and exhibit our similarities while celebrating our differences, than a spectacular photo project like this one. Imagine both people on opposite sides of the world, taking photos of that sun at that same instant. While it is rising in one place and setting in another. Then displaying these pairs online and in exhibits around the world. Let's see if we can use the power of the Internet, the ubiquity of cameras, and the phenomenon of crowdsourcing, to capture these special moments "from both sides at the same time." It's a project involving photography, science, travel, technology, philosophy, culture, imagination and more!
