It’s been almost seven years to the day—February 26 is the exact anniversary—since Melanie Acevedo launched the photo project that has become “Another 52 Weeks.” What began as a means of holding on to cherished moments in her children Violet and Rockwell‘s lives by way of photography has blossomed into a remarkable visual narrative of two siblings growing up and growing into themselves. We see the kids playing together and with their friends, celebrating birthdays, cuddling with their pets, goofing around at bath time, dressed up for school events and costumed for Halloween, zonked out on the couch in the heavy sleep of a child who knows he’s safe and loved… Melanie sees it all, creating images that are both candid and quietly celebratory and proud.
We’re big fans of “Another 52 Weeks” and will be sharing images from the series each week here on the blog. To kick things off, we asked Mel to tell us about eight of her favorite images from the project.
