Mike @mikegifford Member of 365 since 2011, and have captured images for many years. I live in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area, educated at UC Berkeley, successful serial entrepreneur, now working as a consultant and improving my photography / editing skills, and trying to ride my road bicycle as often as I can. I’m excited about being a part of this group, and I hope everyone benefits from participating in our weekly themes!

Caroline @kerosene Born at a very young age, I grew up in France and moved to the US long ago enough that it turned me into a strange blend of French and American cultures. Mostly I feel I belong to both, but sometimes to neither – I’m ok with it. I very much enjoy coffee, have an aversion to social conventions, love unusual items in unexpected places, don’t sympathize with complaints about adverse weather, and am easily distracted. I am humbled and honored to be part of 5+2, this group who has inspired and pushed me to think in different ways… I am so grateful for this thrilling ride!

summerfield @summerfield would've been a lawyer, would've married rich, would've had children, but each time she came to her senses and went in pursuit of other things that defied cultural convention. She's had an on/off affair with photography for so long including six years now on 365 she's wondering when photography will come to its senses. She's been taking selfies and a five plus two participant since the group's inception and that's probably how she's lost all her senses.

Megan @ludgate calls either Boston or Upstate New York home, but can often be found wandering the world - or dreaming of wandering. I consider myself to be a storyteller and love using self portraits to tell a narrative. Most of the time that narrative is infused with my snarky personality, so watch out. ;)

Edwin @fearinnocent not so new guy living in Washington State. Originally from the Philippines but migrated to South Korea a long time ago. Got married and had a kid then moved to the United States. I am on my 3rd year in 365. I've got to know 365 through a random guy I saw on facebook who has been posting mostly selfies and some of his school homework. More about me: very passionate to languages. Can speak 4 languages all at the same time to my dear friends back in Korea. Am a frustrated psychologist and a chemist but still want to pursue one of the 2 someday. Am so glad and excited to be part of 5+2. And hoping to share more of these selfies in the coming weeks.

Kali @kali66 I am from New Zealand. I took up artistic photography when my kids stopped being cute and started putting their hands in front of their faces when they saw the camera. Self portraits seem to fit the bill when i have a concept leap into my head and take form demanding to be made, and the themes of 5+2 really get that thinking happening so I'm loving it.

Domenico @domenicododaro I have been living in Rome, Italy, for more than thirty years. That's 3/5 of my time, overall. I've been seriously playing with a camera since I was a teenager, and among the many other games I discovered in growing up, taking pictures (and sometimes compulsively buying photographic gear) has always been one of my favorites. I developed an interest for self portraits only after starting my 365project this year (2016) and starting following Fiveplustwo (almost never taken one before), so being invited to be a member of this group sounds like making an enviable career!
