A few weeks ago, I was skimming through my comment section on all my old posts and I came across one that took me back to my first smiling photo; it said “I have been smiling throughout reading this post”. I have been wanting my photos to mean something other than just a few seconds of your internet time, I want my photos to live on, dwell in your memory and leave you sensitive enough to smile at anything. I want my photos to remind people what a little curve in your lips does to this world, and so I have decided to re-open this project and this time my hope is it will go on to become more than a blog post. I am officially the smile collector.
