I think a lot about how an object can have such an impact on the identity we outwardly portray. If I didn’t have a #camera , who would I be? What would be in my bag? Who would I find inspiration from each day? I might have different friends, less reasons to post on social media, fewer concerts and festivals attended, not as many places traveled, and no reflections written. - I hide behind a lens, there is no question about that. I deliberately choose not to post photos of myself others have taken. I stick to analog by choice and for aesthetic, but also because the competitive nature of digital pushed me out awhile ago. The astonishing fact is even though so much of my life, personality, and memories derive from a light capturing mechanism, there are so many mysteries about #photography I still don’t fully comprehend. And I don’t think I ever will.
