LONDON (AP) — Robyn is turning photographer, for a day.

The Swedish pop singer is joining an anti-apartheid icon, a former Irish president and thousands of people around the world in an attempt to capture a day in the life of the planet.

The project — aday.org — is inspired by the "Family of Man," a 1955 photography exhibition that became a multi-million-selling book.

Amateur and professional photographers are being encouraged to capture image of their home, travel or work on May 15.

The images will be published on the Internet, compiled into a book and buried in a time capsule.

Participants include Virgin boss Richard Branson, former Irish President Mary Robinson and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Robyn said the archive would help future generations understand the world of today.
