Reseña del editor
Winky Lewis and Susan Conley, a photographer and a writer in Portland, tried an experiment. At the start of every week for a year, Winky sent Susan a photograph: of their children, of the street where they live as neighbors, and of other green places in Maine. By the end of each week Susan sent a tiny story back that spoke to the photograph. Stop Here, This Is The Place tells the story of a year in which children's arms and legs get longer, and traces of babyhood fade--a year that feels interminable to a ten-year-old looking forward and fleeting to that ten-year-old's mother, who can always stop here, go back, and remember.

One photographer, one writer.
Susan Conley (writer) & Laura Lewis (photographer) spontaneously came up with this creative concept of documenting a year's worth of their family's memories. Every week, a photo was taken by one and captioned by the other.
The writing is lyrical, capturing thoughts and musings of the mothers or the children. The fitting accompaniment to the photography.
The photographs have this dreamlike quality, like there are secrets that should only be told in a whisper. Capturing simple, daily moments of these families. They transported me back to my own carefree childhood days.
When nothing mattered.
When everything mattered.
And enjoy the small things in life.

I know all about imaginary friends.
But Piggy is different.
You see I am Piggy and Piggy is me.
I’m not sure how to spell doppelganger, but my brother said it means double.
So this is Piggy.
My good shadow.
My eyes and nose and lips.
I stumbled across one of Winky Lewis's portraits on a photography site (Lenscratch) a few months back. It was arresting, in a way that called to me. There were dozens of other perfectly lovely pictures in that photo roundup, but Ms Lewis's was the only one that sent me running off to learn more about the photographer. I saw this book and liked the story behind the project, so I took a chance and pre-ordered.
For me, the biggest surprise was how much I loved the writing, even more than the photographs. I am a picky, picky reader, but I was blown away by how succinctly and beautifully the writer captures truths about both childhood and parenthood. I'm tracking down her other writings and recommending this one to everyone I know. Including YOU, dear browser of Amazon. No book is right for everyone, but this is one of those small delights that certainly comes close. Would also make a treasured gift for the mothers in your life.
Kids, right after you have them, slow your life down - you can't rush an infant's processes, so you slow down with your baby. But soon the pace, for the parent, rushes back to frenetic.
For kids, though, it stays slow, and they live in this alternate world, part of ours but separate from it. They have their own rhythms and a year, which this book chronicles, is forever. These two have captured that feeling, of time slowed down.
