“You should” is one of the words I hear the most on a daily basis, within my close circle it is one of the words that is repeated the most. Among many you should do this and you should do that, few are those who perhaps understand the magnitude of the decisions that I currently face professionally. The tedium that comes from making images in a complacent way took me to certain limits of my personality that I prefer not to visit, I feel that after exploring various ways of observing I find myself blinded by the possibilities of imagining. A good friend accompanies me these days, encourages me and listens carefully to my reflections and concerns, it was he who among the “shoulds” suggested that I give a new opportunity to the possibility of creating content for my web page, something that in At first it seemed to me that it made no sense, but now I understand the virtues of being able to have my own space, away from social networks, where I can freely express this re-learning process that I am undergoing.
These last months, since I returned to my hometown, it was inevitable to evaluate the path traveled, thousands of images made that satisfied the needs of third parties more than my own. Photography is the medium that I decided to throw up a personal imaginary that over time I only censored. And now, how do I un-learn what I have learned? How am I amazed and enjoy the world of the image again?
By way of following my good friend’s advice, I’m going to try to keep this page’s blog more active, share this process a little so that in the future, when I see the posts, I wonder why I did it, or what I was thinking.
It should clean and clear my mind, hopefully this exercise will work.
