Kill Your Darlings is a unique exhibition and book project by a group of photographers of the same name. The menacing-sounding title, Kill Your Darlings, describes the disciplined approach which the members of the group take to selecting images: the stated aim is to only choose those images which "unlock" the issue either in terms of content or emotion whilst also satisfying formal demands and taking the relevant contexts into account. If these criteria are not met then even the favorite image, the "darling", has to make way.
