One Hundred and Forty Characters

One Hundred and Forty Characters is the title of this poster by photographer Chris Floyd.

In July 2010 he began photographing people that he followed on Twitter. The idea came as he realised that many of the people on Twitter that he communicated with several times a week (in bursts of 140 characters or less) were people that he had never met.

After a year, Chris had photographed 140 of them and this is the ensuing piece of work. (click to enlarge)
The poster is a limited print run of 500. Design is by Wayne Ford

Size is A1 (841mm x 594mm) and were printed offset litho in Tritone (warm grey 4 and 2 blacks). Omnia 120gsm was chosen so that it had a tactile feel and the photographic images reproduced really well. Print is by Gavin Martin.
