The Story
A woman takes a picture of herself
every other day. When she recalls this
life long ritual it floods with memories
full of nostalgia.
Not the literal recollection but
images notorious and Iconic,
entangled in personal
significance and infinite connotation.
Can a lifetime be taken in, in one breath?
