Twenty 11 is a 142 page retrospective magazine that looks back on the year's events through Creative Commons sourced photography. Last year's Twenty 10 was produced in four months, this time I had ten months so I used it to expand upon the original idea and look beyond just ten events in the year. Read Less

Twenty 11 is a retrospective magazine that uses Creative Commons sourced photography to show a time line of events that happened in 2011. This is the second such magazine following on from what I learned in Twenty 10 which started out as an investigation into whether it was possible to source all the photography of a magazine through Creative Commons.

I began work on Twenty 11 in May which allowed me to go deeper into the events of the year and create a much more complete representation of the year. It wasn’t like the mad rush of Twenty 10, the idea for it only came to me in November last time so I was limited to only being able to focus on ten major events.

As with last year there are always limitations on what I can put in this magazine, I rely on the generosity of photographers around the world to put their work under a Creative Commons license. This generally requires a large amount of development in the country where the event is taking place and media freedom hence why I was largely restricted from covering the events of Libya and Syria and the rest of the Arab Spring.
