Modern medical science saved Andrea’s life and put her body back together. But I’m convinced it’s Mary’s art that protects her spirit.
I’m normally not a huge fan of snitching but I’ve had it up to here with slipping and sliding around on lazy people’s bits of uncleared sidewalk.
There’s something about each one that I’m still proud of, months after making them.
I’m not sure if these are my best pictures from the year that was. That’s for viewers to decide. But, scrolling back through hundreds of images I published in 2016, these are the frames that made me stop for a moment and ponder. I think they’re worth a second look, anyway. For the last couple […]
