Right now, right now in the moment is where I live and yeah, maybe I should plan for the future, and maybe I should think ahead because todays free-spirited-photographic-frolicking might not pay the bills tomorrow...But I could be dead tomorrow. So help me I'm going to enjoy today...
I read a quote on TheSilverSunbeam
's journal page by Marcus Aurelius, about change and it inspired me. TheSilverSunbeam
himself inspired me - He's publishing his own book! How completely amazing is that?! I surely want a copy, I love his photography, a few of his images are the initial love between myself and nude portraits.
People say to be yourself, I'm 17, I don't know who myself is and I'm not afraid to admit it, I'm also not afraid to reinvent and alter myself to explore different versions. I might find one I like, I might hate it completely, I might like part of myself and keep changing another.
I'm not talking about what I believe in, because my core values are very important to me, but I'm talking about how I portray myself to the world, how I view things - The ability to pick up the way to see certain issues or people and throw that out the window for a new vision.
I am growing, learning and challenging myself to see things from other perspectives, other circumstances and more eyes than the two I own.
I havn't got much work to show to world yet, but the work I have go is growing and changing just like me. I'm finding myself within these artworks and within others' work too.
So thank you, thank you to everyone out there who submits work for the public eye. Thank you for not being ashamed to show who you are and for helping me show myself.
