30th August – Daffodil Day

Last Friday (28th August) was, as I’m sure you all know, Daffodil Day.

I had the chance to participate in a really cool project, being organized by NZIPP photographer Chris Hillock.

Basically, it’s an initiative between the NZIPP & the National Bank to produce a book on “A Day in The Life of Daffodil Day” – to celebrate 20 years of Daffodil Day and what it has done to support cancer research, and those with cancer.

Sales from the book will be going back into the Cancer Society.

The focus will be on people’s experiences with Daffodil Day – ranging from volunteers & collectors, through to people that have been affected by cancer in their lives.

Each person’s story in the book will be accompanied by imagery from a NZIPP photographer – so there were photogs all across the country teaming up with people on the day to record these people’s stories.

I can’t blog the images, but I can tell you we had a great time, and got some really cool shots!

Once the book is released, I’ll pop another post up here detailing where you can buy it from, so you guys can all get out there & keep supporting the Cancer Society – and at the same time get a really cool book, filled with tons of images from wonderful photographers across NZ.
