Irish photographer Andrew Hetherington, 1969, photographs nearly everything. When he is on a trip you can follow him with pictures on his blog. This leads to archives of images that become an important body of work. For four years he had been taking pictures of the hotels he visited and of the views from his window, consistent, therefore also if there was nothing more than a wall. Due to the consistency in his work it is a true archive. These pictures were published in the book A Room with a View.
Andrew also concentrates on various stories. The following images come from East Bay Rats, a motorcycle club that also boxes, and Tall Paul, the tallest college basketball player ever.
The target of this website is embedded in its name; to post active image-makers until we reach 500 photographers. The photographers can be from any discipline within the photographic range, but they have to be worth looking at and have a certain level of quality. When we get to number 500, we will have a deep database of great photographers.
500 photographers is done by Pieter Wisse, a photographer himself based in Rotterdam, NL. For three years (2009-2012) he was the founder and owner of Four Eyes Photography & Art, a gallery and bookstore based in his hometown that also released Four Eyes Photography Magazine.
Once this website reaches photographer #500 it will be finished and done. It will then only be here with the function of being an archive of amazing photographers of the 21st century.
