The idea of this is that this is an exhibit of my year, a living, breathing exhibit of my pictures this year, in a location of my choosing (the woods that I took a lot of pictures in) and for the people I chose (Heidi and my mother). It's a physical manifestation of what I did. The concept was inspired by a project I saw this past semester in England.
I spent the morning and afternoon preparing for this (and selling a bed on Craigslist), and then Heidi and my mom came out to the woods for the first time, and we took these. Then Heidi and I cleaned everything up, and we went to the Tillmanns for a New Year's Eve party.
And this is it. 365/365. A year of pictures, a journey through 2010, and now I can look back through the whole year and see it the same way I saw it on the days that I took the pictures. I didn't cheat; I took a picture every single day this year. They aren't all good, but I love all of them, because I love the people that they brought me close to, both models and fellow photographers, and how I am a whole heck of a lot better at photography.
It's weird that it's over, but I'm also glad. I still don't know when I will do a photoshoot again. But at the same time, I don't know how I'll be able to go through a day without picking up a camera.
For now, I leave you with this:
""Let everything that has breath praise the Lord." - Psalm 150:6
