Truth // Honesty

September 7th, 2014, 9am

It was 11°C with no clouds detected. The breeze was gentle.

Yesterday I had a HUGE moment of self realisation in my craft. For whatever reason it happened and I’m so very grateful for it. I’ll admit I was on the boundaries of my comfort zone yet I was creating photographs I’ve only so far hoped I had the ability to create. Sometimes you just have to jump. I’m not trying to win at yoga anymore, I’m done with that. This is my voice and my art, yes the likes are nice for the ego but that is all. Yes technique and gear are important but it’s what I’m saying that has greater meaning. Life is truth and the truth is vulnerable. Thank you Ryan for making me think, thank you Laurie for unknowingly pushing me & thank you Frankie for trusting in us both.

“Don’t be an acolyte. Listen. Learn. And then move on in the direction only you can sense is the most authentic. Follow the fear, lean into it, learn from the failures. Then try again. Sure, it’s a little harder, but by God we don’t need more imitators and more art-by-concensus. We need boldness, authenticity, and the kind of imperfect, flawed, honest art that can only be made when you listen to one voice alone: yours.” DuChemin
