Denmark-based photographer, Great Tuckute has just turned eighteen. I really loved her moments she captured for her Summer Diary project. I asked her to share a few words on the project and what it meant to her.
I noticed that I completely unintentionally had stopped photographing moments in my everyday life. Every time I used a camera it was either for a job or a personal project with a professional model. I had no images of my friends, my family or my life in general. Because of the fact that I wanted to make every picture perfect, I completely lost the desire to shoot anything besides well-organized shoots. The idea with my summer diary was to shoot with anything I was carrying with me: my DSLR, an analogue camera, a disposable camera, my phone and a digital camera. The aim was to capture vivid, unique and fleeting moments with an atmosphere of summer and to create beautiful memories.
