Allison McCann vs. Hilary Parker
In Photo Battle, we ask two strangers to spend a week texting each other snapshots of their lives. The photos can be anything, really—their toilets, their dogs, their dinners—as long as they are real. No words, just images. A visual conversation.
This week we present: THE BATTLE OF THE DATA NERDS
Allison: “I liked how we just bombarded the shit out of each other and sometimes the photos followed one another and other times they were completely random.”
Hilary: “My favorite moment was when we sent each other photos of being on the other’s website (I followed this exchange up with the ☺ photo to express my joy at the exchange!). It reminded me of the xkcd comic that there’s always a person behind the keyboard.”
Allison: “Neither of us sent nudes (unfortunately) so it definitely could have been weirder. I was surprised by how the really boring shit I do everyday seemed way more fun without words. Without any context, even the lamest photos I took were way more interesting.”
