when i suggest shifts in other people, i’m really trying to motivate myself.
in my portraiture, i’m photographing other people’s strengths and bravery so that i may instill those qualities in myself.
if i can inspire that confidence in my subjects, if i can gain access to their time and have the opportunity to photograph them…then maybe i can glean some of that adventure in myself to be more of those qualities. i mean, not all the time, but at times.
it’s weird. how about you?
