52 weeks and a photograph for each one
52 weeks and a photograph for each one
52 photographs, one for each week of the year 2012.

This was part of a Facebook project 1/52, which I joined at the beginning of 2012 (or was it the end of 2011?), and which I managed to carry through all year despite hitting the wall a couple of times.

The idea was to take one photograph a week each with a single chosen subject throughout the year. My subject was 'mirrors'. I started off with the obvious and took pictures of mirrors and did, what I feel I do best, manipulated my photographs.

The more the project went on, the more I had to start thinking out of the box and come up with different ideas. It wasn't just about the object 'mirror' any longer but what a mirror does and all the preconceptions, the magic and the concepts that surround mirrors and reflections.

The further along I came the more straight photography with less adjustments and manipulations I managed to do and I feel I've learned so much, from using my old camera properly to playing with my new one and the lenses I bought for it, to assessing an object through the lens and how to play with ideas and not go for the obvious.

It has given me some images I love and one that is my most successful image ever and some I am not so happy with and might revisit later again, just because. There is one extra at the end because I couldn't decide. So it's really 53. :-)

I've loved the project and the way it helped me grow as a photographer and the way it opened my mind to different approaches; which is exactly why I joined a new version of this project this time with 4 different set topics throughout the year, still with 52 images, one for each week though. Wish me luck!
