"Viewers aren’t simply concerned with what an image wants to say; they’re also interested in what that image conveys about the moment it was captured or how it was put together. In our guts, we often sense very quickly whether an image holds together. If the artist is confused about what the photo is about, the viewer will sense that in the reading. If the model doesn’t trust the photographer, or is nervous for some reason, that unease will usually show in an image. The first thing to contend with is giving yourself permission to make the images you imagine making. If you’re playing it safe, that will show up in your work, as well."
50lbsoflust: The work is looking amazing, bro.
Damon, you have no idea how much that means to me. I’ve been following your work for years and have been inspired by you since before I picked up a camera. Thank you, truly.
