Projects and Discovery

"The job of a photographer is not to produce decoration for other people's walls and homes, it's a real voyage of discovery, and I think it's an authentic way to go through life. It's a way of discovering things, finding things, experiencing things..." ~Michael Kenna

That sentence really spoke to me today so I thought I would share it with you all.

The Emptiness of Hope

The Emptiness of Hope
Holga, Ilford HP5 film
Self Portrait, 2009

The title of this photo is a bit sombre, but it is a line from a song by a band whose work inspires me every time I listen to them. A lot of my self portraits are inspired by lyrics to their songs which I feel a deep connection to. So, although it may come off as depressing or sad at first, it's really me discovering what inspires me and my attempts to reflect that through my photos.
