Peter Hurley realized that photography needed to evolve further into the digital space. With the current popularity of the space, Hurley decided that entering the blockchain via NFTs was the best option. The NFT collection is not only supported by Hurley, but also by one of the world’s largest photographer communities known as Headshot Crew.
