2016 in portraits
Another year of portraits, although I missed my daily portrait after I completed the year-long challenge in February – I may embark on something similar again in 2017. There’s something about showing up to make work every day, independent of any project or commission… It isn’t always what you want to do but the rewards of discipline, practice and serendipity outweigh all of the inconvenience.
Anyway, here are some of my favourite portraits of the year, one for each month.
Happy new year :)
