This project arose from a recent creative challenge among a group of photographers. Someone laid down the gauntlet: lets shoot a picture a day for 15 days. The number I think was arbitrary, but it seemed manageable, even easy. Pick. Point. Shoot. Done. And inasmuch as I had no other photographic projects percolating at the time I was in. The images here are the result. A photo a day for 15 consecutive days in February.
The project was not easy as I naively thought it would be, but it was enormously instructive and challenging to come up with a succession of creative images. It was also exhausting but nonetheless outrageously fun. I have ordered the images here based on the day they were made.
Interestingly, surveying these images as a completed portfolio raises an element of artistic insecurity that I have lived with since someone said about one of my pictures, "but there are no people in it." Indeed superficially that is true. However, I have been recently comforted by the realization that there are always two people in my photographs, metaphorically at least.
Me and You.
