A Humans of New York-style social experiment makes its way to Liverpool to capture a day in the life of the city 

On 20 October, award-winning photographer Mark Waugh will be joining photographers of all levels in an attempt to shoot the city across a 24-hour period, capturing an image of Liverpool in 2018. Inspired by the viral blog Humans of New York, the social experiment is the idea of UK company Cartridge Save, to document “the people that make each city so unique”. 

The day of the event will see photographers across Merseyside picking up their cameras, whether smartphone or professional equipment, to take pictures that will then be transformed into a piece of art for the community and provide a permanent testimony to the day. In addition to this, Waugh will be hosting a free photography workshop in the city before heading out to capture the sights himself. 

Waugh and Cartridge Save welcome photographers of all levels in the area to join in the experiment and have their images displayed in the city. For information on how to be involved, visit the Cartridge Save website.
