I'm currently thinking about how I will go about my first big photo project, a body of 100 photographs of people going about life. Each of my classmates will also turn in 100 photos and out of our 100 photos, 10 will be exhibited. The photos are to be of the Edward Steichen, Family of Man Ilk, as it's the 50th anniversary of the exhibit that rocked the NYC MOMA. If you've never seen the exhibition book, you really should. My mother had this book and as a kid I went through it all the time--it surely contributed to my desire to be a photographer.
Leica has hosted a 4 year "Family of Man 2" project that has photos worth checking out. If you have some free time and want to see some really beautiful images, go here.
