I don’t know what good photography is anymore. I’m not sure if I ever did. Over the years, I’ve been trying to find what type of photography I like. Is it still life? Architecture? Do I like nature photography? I’ve been loving portraits lately, but what do I love about it? I’m reading Annie Leibovitz at Work at the moment. And it got me thinking about an element I’ve been overlooking in my photography – life. I shoot things at random, but I never capture the one thing that drew me into my hobby in the first place.
I’m rethinking a lot of stuff in my life at the moment. Things that I’ve never considered or dared ask myself. Things I have avoided or have been lazy about. Things I want to figure out, now. Because if not now, when? In the mean time, K takes photos like these that silence me for a moment. He’s not into photography, but when he photographs, he’s bold. He’s not overthinking things. In fact, I’m sure he doesn’t think at all. He just shoots. And he’s doing a marvellous job at it. So, life. Where do I begin?
