About

The Shot I Never Forgot began life in February 2013 as a curated series of posts on a previous blog www.ourworldmyeye.com (now exists as a dormant archive site).

The initial idea was to invite photographers to share one stand alone image with the world and the story behind its creation. The rules were simple; the image should not have been previously used as part of a project or series, it should be an image that whilst unused the artist had always remembered as being personally significant and the image must be accompanied by an explanation of the story behind it.

From humble beginnings as a concept for a blog post, the number of participating photographers grew and in 2014 we received Arts Council funding to put on an exhibition of the images and publish an accompanying newspaper. The exhibition premiered during the 2014 Brighton Photo Fringe and proved very popular.

Since then we have been working on other projects and The Shot I Never Forgot fell silent.

This website has been created to show the archive of images and to invite new submissions alongside a series of new collaborative projects to follow in the coming years.

The Shot I Never Forgot is curated and administered by the Bristol based photographer John House www.johnhouse.co.uk
