Photos by Time Magazine documentary photographer James Nachtwey were projected on buildings across the world in 2008


Wouldn't it be cool to see photographs projected on the sides of iconic buildings and skyscrapers in downtown Boston?

Join the Second Annual Worldwide Photo Walk

Posted by Eric Bauer, Boston.com Staff July 16, 2009 04:04 PM

Connie Drapeau Kennedy, a RAW regular, sent us an e-mail about the Second Annual Worldwide Photo Walk being held this Saturday, July 18, in hundreds of places around the globe. She's hosting a walk in Marshfield, but there are 13 other walks in Massachusetts alone.

The walks are social events where photographers get together, usually in a downtown area or trendy section of town, to walk around, shoot photos, and generally have fun with other photographers. They last about two hours, and Connie says they're fun, free and it doesn't matter whether you're a beginner, serious amateur, or professional. All you have to do is sign up, using the event's web site, then show up.
