Why is the most beautiful art for yourself?
I find my most soul-felt images transpire from projects where there is no deadline, no paycheck, and no transaction, only the transaction of positive energy from everyone involved in creating the image.
For me, photography is about that decisive moment where you capture the essence of somebody’s soul. It’s about that moment you hit the shutter and you and your subject both feel the energy that is being exchanged. I know when I can feel my art, and I work on the art of letting go and just running with that feeling.
You can have every new technological advancement in a camera, or you can have a disposable point and shoot. If your image makes me feel something, it has accessibility beyond yourself.
And isn’t that why we make art?
