"It's my favorite shot of you, you look so pretty, your eyes were true..."
Less than a month ago I posted a shot that one could call provocative. It took a lot of courage.
Two artists realizing a shot that was an homage to two others, not that we equate ourselves with either one of them. Respect, yes. Homage, yes. Equivalent, no.
It's a photographic statement. That's all.
I don't know if my ex-girlfriends have seen it. I don't know if my parents have seen it. No one has said anything to me about it. And I do not care. In fact, I haven't even thought about it until this morning.
It's a photograph. It's a song. Sing it. It was a moment in time, now, long gone.
Who the fuck cares? I just want the noise to stop. If I cannot do THAT, then I cannot do anything. Take that away from me and I will cease to create.
"What's real? What's true? I ain't turning my back on you..."
