Yuta Sakane curated this project titled "Everywhere, Photos at Once".

" The world you see is not the only world that exists. The "now" you see is different from the "now" of another person. I have asked my friends and their friends to take a photo of the sky, one thing that is connected everywhere, at the exact same moment: September 7, 2008 at 22:00 GMT. We were all looking at the same thing at the same time, but all look different."

I found this project shortly after revisiting Shane Lavalette's "June 6, 2003".

"June 6, 2003 (2006) is a series of photographs made on June 6, 2003 with an early 3.34 megapixel digital camera. Years later the images have resurfaced as a response to German poet Bertolt Brecht's "Remembrances of Marie A." (1927) - a poem about forgetting the face of a woman once loved, but recalling her kiss by the memory of a great white cloud in the sky.

The images in this series have not been altered in in any way and include in the titles the hours, minutes and seconds that they were made on the day that they were taken. Many of these photographs are presented at a large scale with overwhelming digital grain. "
