Half-Way There

Friday, November 29th, 2013 11

For six months now, I’ve gone to bed with some version of the following thought swimming around in my head: “How am I going to shoot myself tomorrow?” SIX MONTHS! You know what that means?!?! I’ve hit the half-way mark on 365 IMPOSSIBLE Self-Portraits. I’m half-way there, friends. It seems like only yesterday I was reflecting on the three-month mark, and here I am half-way through this incredible journey.

PX70_CP_Day117As I hit the half-way point of 365 IMPOSSIBLE Self-Portraits, I see how much I’m growing as a photographer AND as a person. What began as a photography project has morphed into a larger metaphor about myself and life. This project consistently unveils lessons to me at every turn, showing me an insight into life through the process of shooting, by stepping way outside my comfort zone, or in my reaction to a photograph. My greatest hope is to write a book, compiling these awakenings and learnings along with a large selection of the self-portraits, and share them with you.

I’m excited to be over at the IMPOSSIBLE Project blog today, sharing more about 365 IMPOSSIBLE Self-Portraits, including some never-before seen photographs from the last few months. I hope you click HERE to check it out!

    Congratulations! What a huge accomplishment, Meghan. I’m going to start a 365 today (my first ever) and the whole thing seems incredibly daunting. To have watched you do this project and have it be self-portraits (way more challenging, I think) is truly incredible to me. You’re an inspiration, for sure!

    Where are you in this photo? It’s incredible!

      Thank you SO much, Mary. I know you will do a great job with your 365. One day at a time! This photo of the sculpture and me was taken in Des Moines, Iowa. xoxo
