Being creative is a burden. Sometimes i wish i could just turn it off and sell all my photo shit and be happy just working a blue collar job and drinking on the weekend, just waiting to knock someone up and throw in the towel.
I dont have it in me to give up but since i have turned thirty years old i feel like im failing cause i am not on the level i wish to be. When i catch up with friends i talk about all my photo journeys and people i have shot or who i am working with next, and it sounds exiting but really its just tiring. Photo is such an over looked medium of art. i get great feed back, a ton of blog hits but none of it is paying the bills.
I took these images in SF, editing a lot of old work and i keep coming back to these rolls. i miss shooting street but am lacking the drive to make new street work or any for that matter. i say that but i am still shooting daily and wanting to shoot myself in the face every night. i can only hope to get hit by a bus while waiting the stop and die grinding and leave my legacy as a starving artist for my mother to collect off my negatives and gamble it away, only to borrow more money from my brother to bury my ass.
enjoy these free images.
