I want to ask the people here to think of something memorable that someone once told them. It can be anything – serious or silly – so long as it came from someone else. I’ll give any volunteers a sketchbook, upon which they can write out that phrase.
I’ll then take a black and white picture of them with that message, and have the subjects explain the story behind why that phrase was said, who said it to them and what their reaction was upon hearing those words. The picture will then go up on the Someone Once Told Me website.
The site has had a new photo posted every day since September 2007 and I’m currently travelling the world looking for people who are willing to share a memorable moment from their life and be photographed for SOTM. So if you’d like to take part please do get in touch.
I’ll be in the city from March 16th for a few days. I’m having a meetup also, on Wednesday 19th, so do come along and tell me your story there.
Alternatively, if you want to be photographed another time you can arrange that by emailing me at mario at sotmario dot com, contacting me via Twitter or messaging me through the Someone Once Told Me Facebook page.
And if you’re not near to me then don’t worry – you can submit your own SOTM through the website very easily.
So, DC – what did someone once tell you?
