The last few years I’ve usually had a photo project on the go. Everything from pi – capturing the number sequence of pi, to 365 (and 366) projects.

I’ve found the big 365 projects too time consuming. Literally taking over much of my spare time. I think projects work best when you enjoy them and there’s times with the 365-type projects they’re simply not enjoyable. So I’ve been thinking carefully about my next project.

I’m a member of the British Museum and regularly photograph the various objects around the museum. At the weekend I photographed one of the rooms I rarely go into and it struck me that maybe I should do a ‘Rooms’ project. Capture the museum and it’s objects, and possibly even it’s visitors, room by room. So that’s this year’s project. Nice and simple and gives me an excuse to visit one of my favourite spaces in London. It may also be a challenging one as I suspect on some opportunities for visiting the museum, I’ll only have a pocket camera or mobile phone. The aim will be to put together a gallery with an image from each room.

So here’s the first three rooms
