Summer of Something Special (SoSS)Summer of Something Special (SoSS) is an annual photo book by Something Special Studios. This is the publication’s third edition. Every edition of SoSS features a new selection of photographers from around the world, each capturing summer as they see it. The resulting photos come together to form a unique group diary - a communal ode to summer.

Summer of Something Special Vol.III will feature the following photographers’ work: Bafic, Nathalie Basoski, Robin Bernstein, Kennedi Carter, Jasmine Clarke, Christopher Currence, Ibrahem Hasan, Djiby Kebe, Zhenya and Tanya Posternak, Noah Sahady, Peter Sutherland, Ramona Wang, Kersti Jan Werdal.

All proceeds from this edition of Summer of Something Special will be donated to Ghetto Film School. Ghetto Film School (GFS) is an award-winning nonprofit founded in 2000 to educate, develop, and celebrate the next generation of great storytellers. With locations in NYC, LA, and London, GFS equips students for top universities and careers in the creative industries through two tracks: an introductory education program for high school students and early-career support for alumni and young professionals.

To celebrate the partnership with GFS, SSS set up an interview between SoSS photographer @ib.hasa.n and an up-and-coming GFS photographer, @ciara.zo , inviting them to find common ground in the creative process. Then, we created a newsprint to document their conversation.
