A couple years ago, Moon Lists founder Leigh Patterson became interested in a new idea after reading an interview with photographer Sam Abell. Abell, a celebrated National Geographic photographer with a 35-year career, now lives in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. In the interview, he mentions a personal project called The Moon List.
In his words: "Every full moon, my wife and I construct something we call the Moon List — about 25 questions that have evolved over 10 years or so to reconstruct the past 30 days since the last full moon." Leigh wrote to Abell, requesting to see the other questions on his list...and for permission to recreate his idea through the perspectives of different contributors. And so Moon Lists was born.
