: 0 Today, I was reminded by a fellow talented photographer why I do what I do. Thank you @tina_shoots for the article and for your powerful words.
Tina read the article I wrote for @click.magazine and it inspired her to write about her own work and to ask herself some important questions about the purpose of her art.
Here is a quote from my article that I need to re-read often:
“I made a list of things I did not like in the current photography market. First, it bothered me that women are photographed and celebrated only when they’re playing a specific role established by society. She’d be photographed as a “fiancee”, then as a “bride,” then as a “wife” in a boudoir shoot, then as a “mom to be”, and finally as the “mom” at family sessions. How about the women who don’t become fiancees or wives or mothers? Is there really no occasion to celebrate and photograph them in their own right?”
How do you feel about your own work?
