oh and another thing:
"So what do you usually do for work?"
"I’m an art model"
"you mean NUDE modeling hahahaha like a stripper saying ‘I’m an exotic dancer’ hahaha"
yeah then turn around and say nude is art. It’s a battle that will not be won. As if because I’m comfortable nude and aspire to make impacting and artistic images with like minded people, that it’s okay to be condescending. There’s such a never ending double negative on nudity. Where has respect gone?
"A temporal paradox of sorts, the photograph is always a trace of the past which lingers on into the present. The decay it faces is less clearly physical (particularly in the age of digital media) but rather is interpretive. When viewing certain photographs I am often overwhelmed by the sense that I am looking at an impossibly incomplete fragment of something, a remains or leaving which can never be completed or restored, and the understanding of which will only erode further as time passes, and more knowledge of the thing depicted is lost."

"As I remember it, this was the first time I used the phone to take a close up of an unremarkable stranger doing nothing. My heart pounded like crazy."
