Writing a conclusion is slightly easier than an introduction, but still difficult.
This project had ups and downs, generating the support and interest at the beginning to chasing the photographers took time. But this was something everyone collaborated on and communicated where possible. Some members were more active on the group which helped those who were unsure.
Having worked with each other over the few months, you start to get to know people and that's what this project was about. it was never about tack sharp images or high end cameras, or film. A group project is about life, how we operate, what we see and how we communicate this. The photography is one part of the puzzle.
After the issue at the end, the disappointment felt was for a few of the photographers that were affected. However, everyone should remember this was a group project and what a great time they had on the journey.
Even though the camera did not perform perfectly, there were some great images and you could see what others were trying.You can only admire anyone picking up a camera with no experience and shooting with so few shots.
You would not believe the anticipation and nerves caused by waiting. This camera was the only 35mm example owned by the phlogger. Although it is back and the idea was to sell it to fund breakages of camera equipment, the future is now cloudy.
During the latter half of 2017 the follow up to the project was discussed with a few photographers around the world. Reading about there projects and experience, makes you think. Should the camera stay, or should it go?
What happens now - is down to you all.
