365 self-portrait project 2013
golden shutter, self-portrait 2012
*Photography continues to be such a compulsion and a way of going. It’s a means to understanding and my way of freezing the time that never stops. Sometimes it’s the ugly truth of my own thoughts and energy, and sometimes it’s magically clear and vivid as the sharpest aperture. I have no idea where all of this is going but I’m doing my best to continue to focus my energy on the craft and mastering it. I truly love photography and I think that’s why it continues to form in a way that documents my life and the word as I see it.
I’m seeing myself in my work more than I ever have before. Part of that is because I wasn’t looking, and the other part is understanding that I know nothing. While this year comes to a close, I’m looking forward to many more challenges…as I continue to buffer this golden shutter of mine.
no self-portrait today but i feel damn good. i never imagined looking at myself like that, let alone share it with you all. on thanksgiving my mom said, “i saw your hairy booty on the world wide web.” it didn’t sound so bad until she said world wide! but its beautiful. my vulnerability creates room for growth and continues to seek more of an understanding.
this is how I free myself. im putting my heart and my eyes in the same place. this is a way of life.
