I recently saw a post on Twitter from Jim Goldstein ( @jimgoldstein ) asking photographers to collect a series of their best work from 2018 and blog and share it. One of the purposes of the exercise is to review 5-10 examples of recent work with a critical eye, looking for areas to improve on; at least that’s my take away from Jim’s post. That tweet inspired me to go back through the archives and review my work for the past 12 months, not to select a “best of” but to select a series of images that take me back to the moment of capture. I can name the place and time of each of these images. what the environment was like, and what I was thinking as I made the exposure. I can’t always do that.
I narrowed the photos down to 10 at first but added an extra image, well, because I can. The images are in order taken, from January to December and are a mix of film and digital. I’ve decided not to include any descriptions but am allowing them to stand (or fall) on their own.
