“A Diary of Favorite Shots” — With “Hello Snapshots” I usually write in an upbeat tone, and look at the month as one step in the greater journey. But I’m incredibly frustrated with March and April. If I could make an audible “ROAR” here, I probably would. With this batch of shots from Hello March + April, my work gradually took on a darker tone. I don’t think it’s permanent, I think the artist part of me was venting. I think what I really wanted to come through in some of these was that no one “owns” me, or my work. And no one can control me with promises, or new gear. Those things are fun, but they don’t make or break me as an artist (I can take pictures with an iPhone for God’s sake!), and I don’t kid myself into thinking they do. Welcome, May. I’m gearing up for you.
