24 Hour Project 2017 | Human Condition

About

The 24HourProject gathers street and documentary photographers from around the globe to share in real time as they document the human condition of their city. 

Photographers share one photo per hour during twenty-four hours.

Believing that no human is illegal, this year’s edition of the 24HourProject we are coming together to provide urgently needed relief to REFUGEES by supporting Lesvos Solidarity. A refugee camp run by volunteers providing shelter and hospitality to the most vulnerable humans.

Through the 24HourProject’s mission, market and global exhibitions, the project reaches millions of individuals annually showcasing the human connection of images and real live stories.

After the event, photographer select their best pictures taken during the event and submit their final 24 photos to www.24hourproject.org. Photos then become selected to travel exhibitions and are part of conferences, workshops and photoboooks.

 

History

The 24HourProject was co-founded by two photographers, Renzo Grande and Sam Smotherman, in 2012. The idea began with a personal project to document and compare two different cities for one full day. That same year, other photographers got interested and on the first edition of the project there were 65 world photographers documenting 24 cities.

Last year, 2016, there were 2785 photographers in 718 cities from 107 countries. 

The global collaboration of the project lead to gallery exhibitions in Australia, Finland, Iran, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, United States and Venezuela.

Ngorongoro Reserve 2017 | محمية نجورونجورو 2017

 
 
 
محمية نجورونجورو والتي تقع في الشمال الغربي من جمهورية تنزانيا، تبلغ مساحتها : ٨ آلاف كيلومتر مربع وهي أحد مواقع التراث العالمي التابع لمنظمة اليونسكو . أحد اهم أجزاءها هو بقايا البركان والذي شكل فوهة كبيرة جداً ومنخفض يملأه ما يقارب ٢٥ الف حيوان من أصناف عديدة

رحلتنا ستكون الى غرب المحمية بالقرب من بحيرة ندوتو كمشروع مهم لأول المصورين العرب لتوثيق بداية هجرة جواميس النو في شهر فبراير حيث يكون موسم توالد هذه الحيوانات ويولد ما يقارب ال ٨-١٠ آلاف حيوان يومياً وليصل عدد المواليد خلال شهر ما يقارب ال ٣٠٠-٤٠٠ ألف حيوان

يعتبر هذا الموسم وبسبب ولادة هذا العدد الضخم من جواميس النو أكبر نقطة لتجمع الحيوانات المفترسة في القارة الافريقية حيث تجتمع الأسود والفهود الصيادة بشكل مُلفت وكبير لتكون رحلتنا في تاريخ ١٠ فبراير ولمدة ٩ أيام لسبعة مصورين من الخليج العربي

الإقامة ستكون في مخيم متنقل مخصص لمتابعة تواجد جواميس النو بالإضافة لتواجد بعض السائقين ذوي مؤهلات وخبره تسمح لهم بطرح الإرشادات والنقاط المهمه لنا، كما آنه خروجنا اليومي لمدة ١٢ ساعة يومياً خروجاً من الصباح الباكر الساعة الخامسة والنصف والعودة ستكون في السادسة مساءاً

 The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is a protected area and a World Heritage Site located 180 km (110 mi) west of Arusha in the Crater Highlands area of Tanzania. The area is named after Ngorongoro Crater, a large volcanic caldera within the area. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) has a healthy resident population of most species of wildlife. The Ndutu Lake area to in the west of the NCA has particularly strong cheetah and lion populations. Common in the NCA are hartebeest, spotted hyenas, and jackals. The population of African wild dog in the NCA may have declined recently. Servals occur widely on the plains to the west of the Ngorongoro Crater.

 

 Our nine days trip will be on the west side of NCA, near Lake Ndutu area where Life begins for a huge number of animal. In the space of a few short weeks, the calving season sees half a million-young wildebeest brought into the world. This is due to the rainy season combining with the fertile volcanic soil of the region to create a lush carpet of short grass rich in essential vitamins. It is here that the vast herd begins to take shape, and where the predators begin their yearlong assault upon the herd. With so many young and weak calves stumbling around, it becomes easy for the lions, leopards, and cheetahs to pick off a tasty morsel. Our stay will be in a tented mobile camp that tracks the wildebeests migration and stay around there all year around. Accompanied by experienced guides, we will be going out daily for 12 continuous hours (from 6 a.m to 6 p.m) to make sure we cover every aspect of this phenomena and document all parts of the area making sure we make the most of our time in there.

Oasis Dignity - واحة الكرامة

 
 

( وَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّ الَّذِينَ قُتِلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ أَمْوَاتًا بَلْ أَحْيَاءٌ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِمْ يُرْزَقُونَ )

ارواحهم تلهمنا حاضرة بيننا، غادرت اجسادهم مسطرةً، اروع دروس البطولة والوطنية ولكن ارواحهم باقية

غادروا امتثالاً ودفاعاً عن عزتنا وارضنا ووحدتنا وسلامتنا، غادروا رافعين راية الوطن وذلك ما استطاعت القيادة زرعه في نفوس وقلوب ابناءها لا شيء فوق الوطن ولا قيمة للحياة بدون وطن شامخ

سنجدد العهد كلما مررنا بهذا النصب التذكاري العظيم وقلوبنا تهتف قبل ألسنتنا [ الله .. الوطن .. رئيس الدولة ] عش يا وطني شامخاً متماسكاً فهناك بيت متوحد أعمدته راسخه لن تهتز مهما اشتدت الرياح لان بانيها قائد والد مزج الحب بالدم والولاء والاخلاص

Yes, the martyrs have passed away, but their soul loom over our heads and hearts, to remind us of their sacrifices to this dear and beloved country.

We-in our turn, are really very proud of them, and will never forget their sacrifices, their bravery and their love for their country.

They passed away filled with joy thanks to the norms of loyalty to the country and to its leaders and all the people of the UAE 🇦🇪.

We will stand by the Martyrs Monument, and cheer for them, for our country and for our president.

"Those who are killed when fighting for Allah are not dead, rather, they enjoy what they have been bestowed by Allah, and look forward to seeing the others follow suit."
