12 Faces is a year long project that brings together 12 photographers from the uk and usa.
Starting on 1st July 2008
each of the 12 photographers will take it in turn to set an assignment
for the group. The assignment can be a word, a poem, an instruction,
a song, a painting, a photograph, anything that may inspire a portrait
By the end of the year each photographer will have 12 portraits. The idea is that all members of the project will submit at least one of their portraits to the 2009 National Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery, London.
