Investing in myself
Everyone says talk about it, Talk about why you make your art. I make my art for myself. It is my way of escaping in this world that everyone calls home. Then they always ask what inspires you to do and create work that you do, and my answer to that question would be that it is all made up of the people who have let me down in life especially my dad. Him letting me down has inspired to go do amazing things that I never thought of. Without him letting me down, I wouldn't be making the amazing work that I do today. Because of him I strive to show him what he's missed out on and because of this the outcome is amazing, emotional, and deep work. But however my mom insires me everyday in a positive way that he would never have be able to. What I do I do for my mom. Though I may not have a lot of money to buy fancy photography equipment, i and anyone else has the ability to create and amazing image with antique film cameras. My main tool would be my Sony Alpha a6000, I take it everywhere I go, to capturer and create beautiful memories. What my art means to me would be that it shows and reminds me how far I've come in life with such great obstacles thrown my way, one thing I will always use my art for is to kill them success and bury them with a great memory.
