We created The Personal Photography Project (TPPP for short) as a resource for discovering authentic passion projects by photographers.
You should use this site if: you are an Art Buyer, an Art Producer, a Photo Editor, a Director of Photography, an Art Director, an Art Gallerist, a Curator, or any other creative person (even "uncreative", but give yourself some credit) who hungers for new photography and photographers with a point of view.
People always tell photographers that they should shoot more personal work (sometimes called portfolio work, though TPPP is much more than that) to attract more satisfying, creative, professional work. And yet there’s not been a place to solely showcase and explore personal projects — and show them in full.
Projects range from heavy-hitting photojournalism, to travel, to conceptual color excursions, to anything you can name.
Some projects may have begun as fine art, others as book ideas, and others borne from a personal experience that they just had to translate into a visual medium.
You can discover a growing archive of photo projects and photographers in many ways on TPPP:

You may want to publish the images in a magazine, for an ad campaign, for branding, even fine art use —it's totally up to you. You are welcome to contact the photographers directly: we are not an agency.
However, if you need help finding something special, you can directly contact our photo researchers and producers.
