Selected for Something Personal

That's right. Instagram pictures of the little one. This one got selected for the APA SF Something Personal Exhibition.

I spent much of this year making images that are really commercial, as I discovered when I looked through my set of images for 2011. There's a lot of product stuff - jewelry, shoes, phones and tablets - but none of it seemed "personal" enough. Much more than in previous years, a lot of the pictures were for clients, and those aren't allowed.

If I ever thought it was hard to be objective about my own photographs, it's even harder to do so about photographs of my son. I struggled with submitting these because, well, Instagram pictures of my kid!

But they're definitely mine.
