DECADE PROJECT UPDATE

JANUARY 21, 2022

The ten years of shooting for this project ended on New Year’s Eve, with me half undressed in the cold, getting hit in the face with whipped cream pies. The End.

Ten years of obsessive picture taking and documentation complete. Based on my best estimate, over 80,000 frames in all (Ok: exact estimate is 83,891). A ridiculous, excessive number of photographs. But I stuck to the plan, conformed to the rules, and now the decade is behind me.

The hard work lies ahead for 2022: EDITING.

I plan to work through the edit sequentially, meeting (or corresponding) with editors in order, beginning with an early February session with Beto (2012 Editor), then moving through the edits for each year of the book. Conservatively, I assume this work will last well into the fall, but I will post occasional progress reports here.

GOALS/PLANS:

BOOK. Whether self published or not, the end product of this photo adventure will be a book.

PARTY. Ideally, some kind of book release party toward the end of the year, maybe even some pictures on the walls.

When the book is ready and/or there is an event to announce, I’ll be reaching out to everyone with the details. If this ends up being a self-published kickstarter, pre-order sort of affair, I’ll email around the details. If, through some fortunate turn of events, some more legitimate outlet presents itself, I’ll share those details instead.

Anyway – the work is beginning. There will be something to share before the end of the year.

Stay tuned if you wish.
