Hello again!

Thanks to everyone who participated in this year's A Million Little Pictures project. We're pleased to announce that the exhibition will feature more than 10,000 snapshots by hundreds of photographers from 48 countries!

A Million Little Pictures is a community-supported exhibition of snapshots captured around the world. Participants chose a theme and interpreted it via a single roll of film.

The Photomobile will be temporarily constructed in five cities in the fall of 2011: Toronto, San Francisco, Denver, Atlanta and Brooklyn. Please stay tuned for dates and exact locations!

Thanks again to all the photographers! We'll see you this fall!

Connection

A Million Little Pictures isn't just a mobile library, it's a community. We'll be documenting every stage of the Photomobile's journey and sharing photographs and video from each stop along the way. In addition, each photograph in the exhibition will be digitally tagged with its personal history, allowing participants to connect with viewers across the country and around the world.

Learn more about how A Million Little Pictures keeps you connected.

Photomobile

Tour

At least one photograph taken by each participant is guaranteed a space inside the Photomobile, our library on wheels.

The Photomobile will tour the country in the fall of 2011, stopping at galleries, museums and project spaces to share A Million Little Pictures with audiences from coast to coast. Viewers will be able to enter the Photomobile to experience the exhibition and search for photographs by name, theme, or location.

Digitizing

Along with the traveling exhibition of photography, participants can choose to have their work professionally digitized. We'll create a virtual companion to the Photomobile, allowing people from all over the world to experience this year's project online.

In addition to the digital gallery, visitors to the site will be able to tag their favorite photographs and share them with their friends. To have your work digitized and help offset the cost of creating the online version of A Million Little Pictures, please select the digitizing option when you sign up.

Rules

Project overview:

After you sign up for the project, we'll mail you a package containing a customized Brooklyn Art Library disposable camera, your selected theme, a return envelope for your prints, and detailed instructions.

Themes:

Participants select a theme of their choosing. One you pick a theme and finish the sign-up process, that theme cannot be changed. Please choose carefully! If you select the "random theme" option, we'll let you know what your theme is when you receive your camera. The themes are intended to be a jumping-off point, not a burden — so feel free to interpret it as you wish.

Exhibitions and the Permanent Collection:

At least one print from each participant will be included in the traveling exhibition. The project will be installed into Photomobile, our custom-built library on wheels. Photomobile will exhibit the collected photographs at galleries and events from coast to coast. We'll also be digitizing select photographs and producing an expanded Web site that will launch next year.

Although we will continue adding tour dates, please note that all dates and locations are subject to change.

  • Please note that due to the design of the exhibition, we cannot return contributions to this project. Please make duplicates for yourself before mailing your photos to Art House.
  • Participants must use the camera provided by Art House.

About the project

A Million Little Pictures presents Photomobile, a traveling library of photographs from across the globe. The project asks contributors to shoot 27 frames on a chosen theme, allowing viewers to experience the myriad ways that a single story can be captured in an image. These photographs are then joined together to create a new narrative, journeying together from coast to coast. What begins as thousands of individual expressions ends as a communal experience — A Million Little Pictures, one cross-country adventure.

Art House Co-op organizes interactive art projects that connect thousands of artists from all over the world and operates the Brooklyn Art Library, our storefront space and permanent archive. All of our projects are open to everyone.
