A Point of View

How we see the collection of the day is how we choose to see it. Good, bad or indifferent, it’s really a Rorschach showing us what we want to see. I decided to document my days in random increments and see what my life's images told me.

I sent out an e-mail to 30 of my closest friends, asking them to text me a short message at random times during the day. Upon receiving the text I would immediately take a photo of whatever I happened to be looking at. Over the course of three and a half days I took 513 photos. For me, the photos tell one overarching story or sometimes they tell a few shorter vignettes, depending on what I choose as my point of view.

I really want to thank all of those involved for their help. I literally couldn't have done it without you.
