one day, 2010
In 2009 Benge had the idea of getting a group of photographers together to shoot a book in a day. On June 21st, 2010 – the day of the solstice – ten of the world's leading photographers of today each shot a series for a book, in different places around the world. The individual concepts for the "One Day" series are as multifaceted as the work of the included artists, sometimes they even allow the viewer to catch a glimpse of the photographers' private life. The result is a truly unique collector's item, a boxed set including ten individual and elaborately designed hardcover books.
The ten photographers are:
Jessica Backhaus, Gerry Badger, Harvey Benge, John Gossage, Todd Hido, Rob Hornstra, Rinko Kawauchi, Eva Maria, Martin Parr, Alec Soth.
