Since this is my favourite time of year to shoot photographs, I dusted off my holga and have begun oozing with ideas. It was also the fact that I updated my new computer with my old music collection at the weekend. Sigur Ros appeared, and once again brought me back into the state of mind I beleive I had, and lost, almost a year ago now.
Listening to Sigur Ros, carrying my cameras around with me, exploring and dreaming. Since quitting Farnham university in November 2007 I beleive I stubbornly lost touch of all photographic passion I ever had.
I don't think I will ever be able to build a career from my photography, and that is where I went wrong at Farnham. It is a hobby, a passion, and something I enjoy to escape from everyday life. Some days at college I would print ten photographs in the darkroom, and not even see the light of day.
To everybody who feels they are losing touch with such a beautiful subject, to come back to it later on is better than the feeling when you shoot your first roll of film. I feel I have created a seperate life between me now, and me in my photographs. I have captured some beautiful moments in my life, some beautiful people and hidden them away in boxes to look at when I am upset or lonely.
Thankyou everybody who has ever helped me along the way. At college, Jesse, Nat and particularly Ewen Bower who pushed me further than I ever thought I could go. He inspired me to pick up a camera and I haven't ever thanked him for that.
Heres to the future.
