someone once told me

Someone Once Told Me, Mario CacciottoloCame across this last week through a direct message on twitter from Mario Cacciottolo asking if I would have my pic taken for a new art project and hadn’t heard much about it… the tradition of good PR though, by lunchtime Saturday I had seen people discussing it on Twitter and read a review of it in The Guardian Guide.

Billed by said paper as:

“A compelling photography project. The idea is simple: people are photographed at random or by appointment, holding up sheets of paper with the words of something that was once told to them that has stuck in their minds ever since – whether it was a text message from a mate or words of wisdom from a grandparent.”

The site looks great – as intriguing as Post A Secret was when I first came across combined with Mario’s evident talent for interesting and stylish photography.

I am looking forward to doing mine early next month now.

    Ooh – me too! What a co-incidence. Wracking my brains as to what midly interesting/amusing thing I can put on my bit of paper…

    Great idea though, isn’t it? And very nicely done…

    A guy in our office – Paul Allen – had his done last week and was the one who mentioned it first.

    Yes it is a great idea, I really liked the site.

    like all amazing ideas it seems so simple that you can’t believe that no one else has thought of it.
    I hope it really takes off, LOVED having my one done

    Exciting – what did you say? Where was it taken? can you pick?

    like Chris I am trying to think of something suitably clever and interesting…a stretch for moi obviously 🙂
