It took me so long to blog the last part of that session… maybe because I don’t want it to end. I don’t want to put an end to that series of photos because it is one of my favourite series created so far. I am a bit scared I won’t be able to create something similar, something better. Creativity is strange. We fight for it, we struggle and when we are done with a project, when we finish, we are scared to start again. Because we know the process, we know it’s going to hurt.
These photos created with and for Tamsen are a memory of a difficult time for me. A time where my soul was crushed, my faith was lost and my energy was so low I could not operate properly. I remember driving to the location of the session and asking myself what I was going to do, and why I was doing this. But then, I remember the liberation of creating, the freedom of being alone with my model and my camera, feeling no pressure, no stress, no judgement. I almost forgot how rejuvenating it was for me to be able to just create.
These photos are the testimony of a battle, a struggle with my own mind and the result of a difficult but rewarding journey.
