“Our global photo project is taking place on May 15. This is a unique inclusive single day photographic project involving professional, semi-professional and amateur photographers – in one day we are going to capture everyday life all over the world!” says Wikstrom. While the event starts today, you have until May 22 to share your pics.

The collected images will creat a web resource, especially for education. One thousand images will also be selected for inclusion in a global exhibition and a book that will be published in at least ten countries. We are working with the National Archives in Sweden and several other institutions to ensure that this resource is kept, treasured and made available for generations to come. This basically means that we are all sending a message to the future.

There are photographers from 159 countries registered and the project is supported by the Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, and pop star Robyn.

“We are more aware of each other than ever before in the history of human life. It’s more than a perception these days, now it´s a fact that there are so many different ways to look at the world. Aday.org puts this in focus.”

But make no mistake in concluding that it's simply a showcase; Clarke's grandson, Dave Tomkins, has also taken it upon himself to honor his late grandfather as a talented photographer. In this interview, Tomkins introduces him to us and shares the idea behind his personal project.
