Self portrait.
Photography assignment exploring aspects of our personality.


Time has taught me that memories themselves, whilst wonderful, are weak. Extremely fucken weak. As hard as we may try to hold onto the past, memories fade, slowly, until they are but a blurred figure in the foggy distance.

Photographs however, mere dots of ink on a page, have the power to capture a single fraction of a moment, in all its intricate and complex beauty. It's fucking beautiful- trapping memories in frozen images as a last attempt to preserve the past, before it's gone, and forgotten.

Thank you =] Yeah, photography's a pretty personal thing for me, it's pretty much the reason i'm into photography is to try to cage memories inside frozen images as a last attempt to preserve the past before the memories fade as they always do. That's kinda the concept this whole edit revolves about really. and danielle lol.

But thanks aye, and for the fave ^_^
We need to hang out more, man.

yeah, i can see that. it's a really powerful image. you did an awesome job. i think this one is more emotional than the bloody one. ;p

i wish i could have the creativity you have in photography, but at least i can enjoy yours. ;D

we actually do. D: D: D:

Haha, yeah the blood one was just meant to be kinda chaotic and reckless and kinda hostile, in a way. This one was more about the deeper emotions and the meaning behind me. So... thanks =]

Dude, i swear to god the holidays never even existed =[ Sigh. Hopefully maybe eventually we can sqeeeeze some chill times between lame fucken assignments sometime? We should go photoshooting sometime =]

Thank you =] x yeah i am, the original had a photo of danielle in it too to kinda tie up the idea of using photographs to preserve the past kinda thing, given the image is pretty much about her. but i agree that it was a bit over crowded so i do prefer this version.

the teacher was happy anyways haha, that's what counts i guess ;p
