Sometimes a thing needs working through. Last night I talked about how I haven’t really been feeling the portraits, the pull, the outlet, the need.
That’s exactly the point. This is a space where I can slip into the stillness effortlessly. When I step in front of the camera, the blank canvas and emptiness I feel is not a loss. Just the opposite. It is an awakening, an opening.
Part of this journey for me has been learning to let go of emotion. To be free of emotion. Not in the sense that I walk around like a robot without feeling or understanding of emotion.
Rather I move through this space with out attachment to the emotions. I feel them, I recognize and accept them, I revel in them. But I am not controlled by them. They flow through me, I am a conduit for this flow, and in this way I feel more and am more free than ever before.
