52 photo stories in 52 weeks
2017 is the year of the photo story — for me, at least.
I plan to publish one photo story a week. Most of these stories will contain new photos, but I’m also allowing myself to dip into my archives.
The purpose? I want to explore what it means to tell stories with photographs. My current working definition for a photo story is:
A photo story is a collection of images that provide evidence for a point of view.
