These photographs represent some of the work I’ve created and co-created during 2018. It’s not the complete list but a selection of images that sum up the year. Once more I’ve tried to stick to 1 photograph per month.
Although the project Boundary No Boundary took up the bulk of a 4 month period I’m pleased that it didn’t completely swamp my life, at least I don’t think it did. Those that encountered me during those months might disagree.
