I’ve got no words, but I do have photos. Back in college, I put up a series of paintings for critique as was the process each Monday morning. The art professor looked at them all – and asked me what was wrong – why did I want people to leave me alone? I stood there dumbfounded. I had not even considered my mental state that previous week and how it could have affected my work. After taking a moment to formulate my response, I said fuck it and responded simply, “everyone in my life is having chaos, and they are all wanting me to fix it. I am done – and I DO want them to leave me alone.”
I often wonder when I look at my photography – at the subjects I choose – and the composition – what my subconscious is trying to tell me. What questions would that art professor ask given what I’m choosing to shoot?
