A few days ago (on my birthday) I was at school talking about my portfolio. Main reason to discuss it with some of my favorite teachers was because I don’t like any work anymore. They told me calmly to print all the work I have done and just look at which photo’s would look good next to each other. They also to me specifically not to let my mind judge too quickly about photo’s that are good, but that I have seen too much.
I told them about my love for minimal. Which was always sort of in my photography. The funny thing is, they also told me to only put in the work I love, only the work I support. Now I got that feeling back. I want to work on a portfolio I am proud on. It is a little late that I finally got my photographing love back (especially since my school is done in a few months), buy you know what they say: “ Better late than never.’
It was a lovely gift, so out of the blue. I want to work really hard these last months, and give it everything I got. These photo’s are also new to my portfolio, and I got six more shoots planned, and I want to add two more. I got this shit.
