A song my colleague has been playing incessantly throughout our open concept office while making his newest short film. Thank goodness there are no walls to keep this song from me while he edits, edits, edits.
And some rosy-apple-cheeked news for WHP! Landscape 020 was requested and taken on by Crate & Barrel for their Fall line.
I am in a stage of yes. A yes stage. You could ask me near anything.
Saying yes to this was different for me -- I have been in the habit of shelter and protect. My work. The quality. The client. The pathways. Myself.
There is much to shelter and protect against, I know this, but pushing myself just enough to place trust -- in others, in fate, in making mistakes -- this seems vital. I see thick walls and metal hearts and deep protection damage artists I have known. Damage people I have known.
It is liberating to have just enough control of quality and rights, and leave the rest to strangers I have never met.
And with this I will hope against hope to create small but meaningful relationships with more strangers across North America who may not have otherwise met my photographs and brought them into their lives.
