These photographs are from a portrait set that Sue and I created together at the end of April. In our meeting before the shoot, we spoke a lot about art, and the creative process, and it was good for the soul. As I’ve written before, I feel that social media pressures us to create in a certain way in order to gain an audience. Online communities become increasingly closed loops, reinforcing certain elements over and over, rather than sources of creative outlet. And that takes away from us, to our detriment. It was good to work with another talented creative.

“I make art, sometimes I make true art, and sometimes it fills the empty places in my life. Some of them. Not all.” – Neil Gaiman, The Ocean At The End Of The Lane. This quote, from the book I was reading at the time, really sums up my thought process quite well.

As always, thank you for looking at my work. You can reach Sue here, if you are looking for an awesome person to partner with in the creative process.

Notes: these were all shot using only the natural light, using my D750 + 58G or 35art, at the pretty cool Studio 7F
