It seems that I’m shedding skin.
Or perhaps adding new on top of the old… I don’t know yet.
As of late I’ve found myself shooting, editing and thinking about photography quite a bit more than my usual physical work. The thing that was originally supposed the be a mere exercise in composition and casual everyday creativity is taking over.
It might be the intoxicating immediacy of photography or the fact that I can actually create in this medium no matter my situation that is the culprit of this transformation. I’m enjoying it immensely, yet likely won’t be adding much in terms of originality in to the infinitely over-saturated pool of photographers. That doesn’t seem to stop other people though.
My website is devoid of any mention of this. It is beginning to feel like I’m misleading people. Yeah, I’m hesitant to call myself a photographer. Why does it even matter… Labels are shit. They mess my head up.
I’ve come up with a way to combine photography with sculpture though. There might be some light at the end of that tunnel.
Anyway, these past few days I’ve edited a set of images that I’m very proud of (ask me again in a few weeks…). They just might be a huge stepping stone if I go through with them. Not hyping, just saying.
