3191 Miles Apart is a blog started by Maria Alexandra Vettese and Stephanie Congdon Barnes. Both Photographers, Art Directors, Stylists, and Designers. The two creatives met back in 2005 and in 2007 started their first project of diptych photographs: “A year of mornings”, followed by “A year of evenings”. “A year in mornings: 3191 miles apart” eventually got published, and is now the only place we are able to view the photographs. In 2010, they decided to take their series to a quarterly magazine print format, and post weekly on the blog.
As a photographer myself, I love this idea of capturing the moment you are in at the same time everyday. But these ladies took it one step further and did it with each other along the way. While Maria is in Portland, Maine– and Stephanie in Portland, Oregon. It is such a simple idea, yet so beautiful. This is just one of the many things that inspire me to do my own side projects while pursuing a career. Check out 3191 Miles Apart
