The 12.12 Project was conceived by Tennessee based film photographer Penny Felts in 2013, during a period where she felt that her photography had become stagnate and predictable. She wanted to challenge and push her creativity in new ways. Already connected to a worldwide pool of instant film photographers, she invited 11 women to participate. The women she selected were photographers whose instant photographs she respected and admired, and The 12.12 Project was formed.
About midway through the year of the 12:12 Project, she started thinking about having a men’s version. Since the original group was strictly women, she started thinking about how some of the male photographers who she knew might shoot some of the themes that the women had chosen. She also wondered what themes the men would choose, and how different would those be.
Every month each photographer chooses a theme, one that challenges each other, pushes each artist out of their comfort zone, and generates creative photographic responses to powerful thought starters. This website is dedicated to the unique results generated from each of the artists in the group.
Another aim of the project is to publish books, and tour with worldwide exhibitions to allow these interpretations to be seen by all. (Source: www.the1212project.com)

Tales From The Darkroom
This is one of my ongoing projects. It's about metaphysic reflections on what drives us in our "minds" – our fears, passions, anger, hate, dark thoughts ... and so on! The dark room respectively the setting, the figure and the other elements are the visual metaphor for our minds/thoughts. The 'door' respectively the 'light' is the symbol for what's 'outside' – what's influences our mind. Some subjects are sociocritical, some are human self-reflection.
