So new year new projects.
What started out as a little group to share and blog our journey in self portraits has sparked some deep love and connections with other photographers. Getting behind the frame is so incredibly humbling and terrifying at the same time. I think most of the women in the group have truly embraced this challenge, and it has become a great source of inspiration and encouragement. There is this notion of selfies being a bad thing, that women who take them must have an ego the size of Texas, and most of us are guilty of shaming those who always put themselves first. This project goes beyond motherhood, and is aimed at trying to discover the woman + photographer we’ve lost along the millions of photos taken, and perhaps not everyone feels a little lost. Some are just trying something creative, something different. Others may be trying to make sure their children remember that they were there too. What ever the reason may be for joining this project, I think we can all agree that it is not something we’ll regret.
