I made a lot of friends with this one. Photo Assignment #13 is to do a self portrait. I encouraged people to be original and push themselves with this, but this assignment really took me by surprise.

I make videos for a living. There is an audience, but I never see them. The closest I get is a comment with an avatar or someone reaching out on Twitter and its really easy to lose sight of who is on the other end.

For the first time in 8 years of making these videos I got to see the audience. Not only that but interpreted visions of my audience based on personality. These are intense, sad, hopeful, funny and beautiful… This is by far not only my favorite photo assignment but one of the biggest highlights for me in the years that I’ve done this show. I love you all.
