The Swap

Individual collaborations with Megumi Shauna Arai and Maggie Carson Romano

The Swap' is a project designed and curated by Stuart Pilkington.


"It is a very simple concept.  On two separate days two photographers photograph each other and create
two portraits.  On day one, person one is the photographer and the other is the subject and on day two
they swap roles so that the photographer becomes the subject and visa versa.

The idea of being in front of the camera is abhorrent to a lot of photographers but for those who are
willing to take part it is an opportunity to create something collaboratively with another photographer.

The photographers are encouraged to sprinkle their magic and be creative with their images.  They can
be as simple or as elaborate as they want, as literal or as abstract as they wish."
