"For me, the camera is a sketchbook, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously." Henri Cartier-Bresson
I love the gut-trust and freedom in this quote. So much of creating art is getting comfortable with hunches, chasing down the glimmers in your subconscious. Ideas seem monumental in their initial spark, but doubt soon creeps in. If you want to create something, work through that doubt. Embrace imperfections. Keep sketching. The underside of the tapestry is a tangle of knotted threads--art that makes it out into the world often seems effortless, and most of the time no one sees the hobbled, cobbled patchwork, the scaffolding.
These are not my best photos, though they aren't by far my worst. They are rough outlines, feelings, tiny breaking buds of ideas. They are experiments. They are sketches.
