You are good at projecting a narrative onto a frame. It's digital too, so, do it alot. why not?

I sense an agenda here!


You're right that "projecting a narrative onto a frame" is both one of my strengths and perhaps also a crucial weakness. That's precisely why I believe my attempt to confront the problem of selfhood when my sense of self is in such a profound state of crisis needs to be routed through an examination of my relationship with photography. In other words, I think I do it -- and do it well -- because in doing it I confirm that I am who I think I am, in an "ergo sum" kind of way.

I always have an agenda, I wish I knew what it was. Remember... photography is DIGITAL. So, no penalty for bad job. It's probably a lesson I could learn myself. No penalty for trying.
