For the second year running, still life photographer David Sykes is at work on his Adventgram Project. Every day until Christmas, he will shoot the number of the date on his phone and publish it on Instagram. This year, Instagram users can participate by posting their own numbers using the hashtag #adventgram. 10 prints of Sykes’ final 25 numbers will be awarded to the best participants.
