24 Hour Project 2017 | Human Condition


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.



Document Humanity to Make a Difference. By bringing the 24HourProject world community together and creating partnerships with NGOs, we aim to raise awareness to world human condition issues.



Each participant shares to social media one photo every hour for the full 24 hours of their city following 24HourProject guidelines. The images, theme and content become viral in all social medias giving a live view to the world hour by hour. 

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.



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.



The 24HourProject is looking for supporters who want to grow their exposure by being active partners of this unique global documentary photography project.
