My Favorite Picture Of You

Why Watch? There’s a backstory to T.J. Martin and Dan Lindsay’s My Favorite Picture of You, but I don’t want to know it. There’s an entire shared lifetime behind it, but this glimpse into a photographic past colored by a labored, weakened voice is enough to feel like family.
