Artist's Statement: Update

I got to listening to furniture maker, teacher and writer Peter Korn at The Hay Festival the other day. Lots to think about, and I might try and commit some of it to screen at some point. In the meantime, I would just say that I was inspired by his Artist's Statement which was, in essence: 


INTEGRITY

SIMPLICITY

&

GRACE


All that is needed really, isn't it? If I can bear that in mind when making photos in future I will be a happy photographer. No bigging up by neologisms or obscure academic language, no turning off the viewer with reference to arcane theoretical arguments. Integrity, simplicity and grace - done. If you have to ask, you won't understand.

My trouble is

when I'm confronted with a request for headshots, say, I can't just stop there I have to start experimenting. I mean, you wouldn't put this on Spotlight or the IMDb now would you? Ah well, I wouldn't do it if I couldn't, if you see what I mean. Above is the ever-beautiful Claire-Monique Martin taken on Friday. Other photographs were procured.

Schopenhauer’s central premise is that talent achieves what others cannot achieve, whereas genius achieves what others cannot imagine.
