January family portrait, a new beggining

I always knew the family portrait project would end when the kids where done with having their picture taken by their mother. For the last few months it increasingly looked like we had reached the end, with both rolling  their eyes every time I suggested we do it. I'd almost given up, and then this happened......

in collaboration with Mila and Mario Bassu


These are based on photos I took for the February self portrait. The princess decided to join in the fun and made these by using each other's faces. Trouble did himself (supersonic pirate of sorts). And so begins a new era of the family portrait, one of collaboration where object becomes subject and subject object. After the introduction of the poems it continues to change and grow, proving that more than  four years on,  it's still alive.
