im pondering the ramificaitons of each path i take in this expanding realm of image making. uhhh lot.
i know that as a documentary photographer, life's cake. i exist within the problem and i am under no obligation to make statements about what is going on. i record, and through my voice, something that i do not fully understand arises. something.
my commercial experience is limited, and i am coming to see that as a commercial photographer, it becomes the obligation to invent life, and invent the solution through the product you sell. the elusive life of documentarian comes to play only in the facade of life and the actual interaction between model and photographer.in this new season where i aspire to see my work in large-circulation commercial projects, i am terrified to direct all of this energy to something i know is bullshit, but i am overjoyed at the opportunity to learn how to direct my energy.
and then i may understand what that something means.
