26 Weeks Camera Challenge #20: Personal / by Simeon Smith


What’s the background image of your phone? It’s more likely to be of your friends and family than a famous photo by one of the masters. 

What photos do you have in your wallet? Probably your partner, kids, or family. Probably not a Cartier Bresson print. 

The most important photos in your life will never be the great, artistic shots. They’ll be that photo of your partner on your first date. The first time you caught your kid’s smile. The last photo you took with your grandparents before losing them. 

This week shoot for yourself, your loved ones, your family, your friends. And show no one. 


  1. What’s the most important photo in your life? 
  2. What photos would you want to save from a house fire? 
  3. What is the value of the personal?
