“I am not afraid…I was born to do this.” – Joan of Arc
We all have a point in our lives, where we decide to stop facing our fears and realize what we are truly born to do. No matter how much I try to turn away, something always draws me back to my camera. It awakens me. It helps me to see who I am. No matter how long I have been away from it, some how it always helps me to keep moving forward. Maybe because it mainly helps for me to really take a look at myself and start to overcome my struggles. Mainly because it forces me to deal with the things I don’t want to or maybe the things I don’t want to see.
There is something about letting the creativity take over and helps me to keep moving forward. I am truly fascinated with the body and its transformation that it can take. Right now, I don’t think I seek the fascination with my own body, but my mind emotionally. Trying to learn more about myself. But I figured it was time to pick up the camera and really begin to look at myself again. Here goes.
I may be taking a break from Grad school because I was truly stuck. But my creativity has not left me just yet. I was scared for the year I was in Grad school because I didn’t feel like I was truly born to be an artist. But like Joan of Arc…. I was born to do this…
