I’m in creative hyper-drive and I am striking while the creativity iron is hot. I’m also taking notes if/when the flow stops, and twiddling the fingers is not an option. This means that I’m working differently and taking chances - that I’m pushing myself with my Holga. I’m making photographs that matter to me, and I’m fortunate enough that the majority of my viewers are liking them - for real; ne pas avec Facebook.
Speaking of - I go on Google+ Art Project often and there is some really extraordinary work posted there with maybe a +1 or no rating at all. I asked a friend whether it was me or was the majority of work with massive ratings predictable. The answer was, “What difference does it make? You either know that you’re good or not and it’s just a platform to be seen.”
I found this thought provoking, and a challenge to the the self-aware and self-confident, artist.
