What is a 365 project? It's a daily theme project for a year. I will be posting a photo a day on this blog. I am not the first to do one, nor the last. I have had the idea to do a skeleton project for a long time. My husband gave me a life size medical model which I had asked for this year for my birthday. "Samantha" came to be. I call her Sam. Why a skeleton?
Skeletons have always fascinated me. We all have one. It's the infrastructure that holds us together. As a kid I would stand in the Field Museum, and Museum of Science and Industry in front of their skeletons. In school when we were supposed to be making Halloween pumpkin decor, I tried to make skeletons, much to my parents and teachers dismay. As an adult I took a medical illustration course that was of a semester of bones. That's when I fell in love.
Sam promises to be the best traveled skeleton you know. She's already been to Denver. I wasn't prepared to observe the TSA watch her go through their monitors, and failed to get a photo. Many photos will be taken with my phone, on the fly. Some will be posed. She has New York and Italy on her travel agenda before the end of 2012. I have to thank my husband, kids, and friends for their support and love of this project and me.
I have a shot list started. I guess working in the movies made it's mark on me. If you or your business would like to have a photo with Sam contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
