Marginally Coherent Ramblings to Wind up the Year

Here’s a conundrum* for you: How does someone who doesn’t believe in making New Year’s resolutions** do a series of 5 self-portraits “express(ing) New Year’s resolutions through photography and self-portraiture?” If you have any ideas about how to answer that little riddle, I hope you’ll share them because in just two days I’m planning to […]
