My project ended before it began.
I do think documentary like this serves a greater good by informing. In the end, I just didn't want my own loved one to feel like a "subject" any more than I wanted to allow myself another moment of viewing her as such. :-)
I photograph her no more and no less than other family, with hopefully similar motivations.
Evasive maneuvers, Mr. Sulu
"A distinction I do not particularly care to earn is "award winning." One of the most pervasive and harmful effects of competition is the mindset that it is more important to strive to be better than others, by the arbitrary opinion of someone else, than to simply make yourself into the best that you can be. It implies placing greater importance on how others perceive you than on the personal rewards of creative work, and to bind your perception of your self to such opinions rather than to trust your own. In that sense, it is relinquishing control of your own self worth and enjoyment of photography, handing it off to others for the small chance of a short lived moment of fame."
