On New Years Eve I was adamant that I’d photograph our children once a month through 2017, I’ve missed two months already but instead of being a puritan and writing it off until next January, I’m coming in from now.
I went to see the Gee Vaucher introspective at the start of this year and watched a film she’d made called ‘Angel’. It focussed on a girl who was about to start the move from primary education to secondary, the want to catch her face and all it’s micro expressions before it became affected by it’s surroundings and started to ‘grow up’. Our oldest (my step daughter) started secondary school last year and the change in her face is already vast. My son will start after this summer and I want to track him, like I wish I’d tracked her.
