While I have been very busy over the last year trying to figure out where my photography was going, I felt that I haven’t quite figured where I was going. However, I am enjoying the journey and what I am seeing. I have found that I enjoy taking photos of the life that unfolds in front of me, wherever it takes me. This has taken me to Northumberland, Glasgow, Durham and different parts of London.
I had a good conversation today about getting older. I find society gets so bound up, and scared, of getting older. For me, it’s not about getting older, but gaining a maturity, without loosing your youthfulness. It made me realise that, although I exploring where my photography is going, I am finding that it’s maturing; it’s becoming more reflective.
When I am talking about maturing, I’m not talking about losing a sense of humour or a sense of fun. It’s about gaining a deeper sense of the world around me. It’s about being more reflective about the world I see around me, and reflect the world around me to itself.
While I may not have a sense of where my photography is going, I do see it developing and maturing. It’s not standing still or becoming stagnant. It’s been a wonderful journey so far, and am curious to see where it takes me. And I’m enjoying the journey along the way.
