At the Same Time is a self-published photography book by six artists: Steven Beckly and Dylan MacNeil (Toronto, Canada), Ted Kerr and Zachary Ayotte (Brooklyn, NY), and Colin Quinn and Oisín Share (Manchester, UK). Drawing and expanding on a variety of photographic traditions, the collaboration explores the nature and development of their romantic relationships from three different parts of the world. Private exchanges emerging from domestic, romantic, and sexual dimensions of their relationships are openly explored, uncovering a collection of personal narratives and intimate realities.

Geographically separated, the artists have developed independently, only to discover each other on Flickr, a photo-sharing website. The similarities in the subject matter and its treatment suggest something that exists beyond traditional borders. As the title suggests, the collection reveals a common stream of consciousness, a simultaneous creation. The collaboration documents and details the evolutions of their lives as couples over the past three years.
