Unnamed One, 2017 — Side Slide :: (click to see more)

I’m seeking or pursuing or maybe even dreaming a new idea – a vision of movement in the foreground and stillness in the background. Just started shooting for it this week. At the moment it’s still murky and the results I’ve got are not what I want – but I’m shooting again, which feels good. I think my process is changing, to something less rigid. That’s okay – it makes me happy. The rigidity was locking me up – well it was part of making me stuck.

There’s still doubt in my mind though. The back end of working the images is still boring so I need to change something to alleviate that – it makes me feel lonely like I’m working on a futile task. I need some kind of reward to make it feel worthwhile.
