Its time to clean the dust off this blog.
I haven’t been very active online lately. I haven’t been active in my photography lately which makes me sad to be honest. I keep telling myself, it will pass, its just a stagnation period, everybody has one. Thing is I haven’t felt like this in maybe more than 3 years.
Sure, I can blame it on a few personal family issues and I’m not saying this is not a valid reason to feel unmotivated and losing all interest but I kind of feel disappointed that I can’t translate it into my photography.
Ok, I have to say that this summer has been quite busy with work and it wasn’t easy finding time, however my mind wasn’t and still isn’t set on the right channel… Things bother me.
You know what, I’ll try to look at it from another angle and confront these issues or whatever is troubling me through photography. Is it going to be “street”, is it going to be “landscape”, “portrait”, “macro”, “documentary”??? I seriously don’t give a shit. I just want it to mean something to me, thats all.
Excuse me for this heavy start but I actually feel better, now I typed all that.
On a plus note, yes there is one! – I finished and published my first colour photo book through Blurb. It is called “Montpellier: Around the corner” . You can check all the details by following the link.
In the nutshell, this book is dedicated to the city where I have been living for the past 7 years. It’s where I plunged into street photography and where these moments captured my imagination.
It’s made with Bookwright software. It was initially meant to be a zine, however while editing the photos it made sense to make a proper book. There are 40 colour images. Of course the main issue is the price… Its something that really bugs me with Blurb but with their software being so easy to use and actual quality of paper is great, I wouldn’t really want to use anything else. I do realise that with this kind of pricing, I would be amazed to see this book sell, however I’m planning to use in the near future as a pitch for a local exhibition. Also I feel it was necessary to sort of summarise my work for the past 4 years or so.
Another thing that I’m in the middle of and haven’t totally decided on is moving to Squarespace… But i’ll leave that for the next post.
