Watching the submissions come in for this assignment has been an incredible journey. You’ve taken me back to a turning point in my own life, when a college art project helped me face—and ultimately overcome—my lifelong fear of heights.
Some of the photographs have really explored the depths of your personal fears, an effort that has been the foundation for creating sets of beautiful images. I’ve been very impressed. My hope is that this experience, like the one I had in college, helped you overcome your personal fear. Speaking from experience, you can now look forward to a future where you are at one with yourself and your surroundings. Congratulations on that, and many thanks for participating in this assignment. Get ready for the next one!
