“WHY WILL MEN DO ALMOST ANYTHING FOR A WOMAN?
Remember President Clinton and Monica Lewinsky? In an interview she was asked why she thought he risked so much for her. She answered: “ He told me that when I entered a room I lit it up.” That is exactly what men want from women, that light, and they will do anything for it.
For men life has no meaning, they’d rather not be here. For most men life is one long crucifixion. Men suffer more than women imagine. The light of women is what makes them happy to be alive, full of love, of life, and they will go to any length to get it when they see it.
Usually that means they want to fuck it, but sometimes even seeing a woman smiling radiantly at them will make their day.”—
“The difference between ‘pornography’ and ‘art’ is lighting. Or if you want to be really ‘arty’ shoot in black and white. That’s how most people think, It’s absurd!
Both ‘art’ and ‘pornography’ are concepts invented by somebody a long time ago. There is no such thing as pornography. Everything is in the mind, instilled by a warped, ignorant society at a vulnerable age. Nudity isn’t offensive, people fucking shouldn’t be considered offensive. Anyone who finds nudity/sex vulgar is a weak, mindless idiot.”—
“It is only our exactions of life that are terrible. It is only our impossible conceptions of beauty and good and justice that are terrible—because they never are realized, and at the same time they prevent us taking life as it is. That is the real source of all our sorrow and suffering.”—
“Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man.
— Edward Steichen”—
I don’t have a specific criteria on what is and what isn’t ‘beautiful’. I like to think i can be subjective. I try not to think in terms of ‘good’ or ‘bad’ ‘best’ or ‘worst’ of course i have preferences but i fight very hard not to reject things and keep an open mind. Man made art in my opinion is just a manifestation of human conceit, an occupation to stave off boredom. I like flowers, and little birds, clouds, twinkling stars, Insects, all creatures, trees. Hills, everything natural. and women too, of course.
Do you think you can be socially retarded/ a social recluse and be an artist? Cause I dont feel like talking to any of my models. I'd rather creepily follow them and take a picture at the right moment?
It’s not ‘creepy’ to be a little discreet when shooting models. You don’t have to be gregarious like Terry Richardson to get results. It depends on what you are trying to achieve. You should never alter your personality to accommodate the people you are photographing, your personality will reflect in your photos. Work in the style that suits you. Lot’s of artists are near recluses. with good reason, most people are fucking cunts.
“Just take the photograph, don’t allow your imagination to influence you, don’t think! Photography shouldn’t be about thinking. There’s too much nonsense written about getting in ‘close’ or changing your position to alter the angle. Use your eyes, not your imagination, Egos have been responsible for ruining many a good photo opportunity. Just take the fucking picture!”—
