a portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2013
At the window in the afternoon light. One year later, and still his favorite spot on earth.
Sun in her eyes, even light is puzzling and new... there is nothing like rediscovering the world through a baby.
*part of Jodi's 52 project.
There we have it, the end of this year's 52 project! There were times when I slid behind, and even times when I flip-flopped the sequence, but overall it's so much fun to look back and see how much these little people have changed and grown in 52 weeks. I deliberately chose to take a very literal approach to the idea of 'portrait', and the face was the primary subject of each one of my images. I think the furthest I diverged might have been here, when I was just so happy to finally get outside! My thinking was that I already take so many pictures, I wanted these to be very focused. I love that I can truly see those features maturing at warp speed, but I also found the restriction insanely limiting, and I think if I continue this project next year I will probably loosen up a bit.
I am planning to make a printed album with all of the images, and I'm still contemplating the format since obviously our baby girl only started appearing from August forward. I will let you know how it turns out, crossing my fingers that nothing is disastrously out of focus!
Happy final days of 2013.
