why quit while you’re losing ?

why quit while you’re losing ?

When photographers get beyond copying the achievements of others, or just repeating their own first successes, they learn that they do not know where in the world they will find pictures. …………. and by doing it over and over and over again, you find your own voice, but it’s just modestly different than someone else’s. And how do you describe that? How do you describe the difference between two saxophone players?

    I think that photography follows the path that painting did before. we learn from our masters, and come to the conclusion that everything was said before. we all children of our culture and it is natural that we repeat it somehow, that’s our language..instead of hunting for amazing pictures maybe it’s better to focus on our quiet stories and it will come time for them to grow.

    you see, I am applying this rule to writing. still looking for my own voice. let’s keep up looking.

  • these pictures were made in Slovakia…somewhere on the road, can’t say where exactly..

    searching for own voice is OK unless it is not under too much pressure of ones BIG expectations…than it is really kind of suffering :)

    than you aleks

I don't want my life to be a reason for other's life to be a suffering that is why I am vegan and that is how I want to raise my son. I love my little family, birds, rainy days and life on the road. I believe in life before death :).
