A year of ‘This is…’

A year long photo-a-day project taking on a different “THIS IS…” theme each month.  12 highlights of ‘This is..’,2016

The year started with a desire to be real, normal and open in both my everyday life and in my art. I did not want to present only the best edited bits, but images that captured what was really going on. “This is normal..” began. It felt liberating, and quite brave at times,  to showcase the mess, dirt, chaos and challenges of life alongside the joy and fun times too. The idea of ‘keeping it real’ carried on throughout the year and I feel has lead to a greater depth in my images and art. Each month’s theme was either suggested to me by friends or was something I wanted to explore further. The year has had great challenges at times, but seeking to document it through a certain theme has helped me focus on and appreciate the strength of family, the beauty of creation, the presence of light in darkness and the joy in the unexpected amongst many other things.

In 2017 I aspire to continue  along this road of reality and integrity within my work and life.
