So, how do you think you’re doing

So, how do you think you’re doing are photographic novelettes, and they are driven by the thoughts and desires of the chief figure, the photographer herself. Particular to her approach is the incorporation of textual coaching techniques that expose the complexity of relations in general and just how difficult it can be being yourself. (Journal, 2008)
