Your comments are NOT warranted and are NOT welcome on anything I produce. I don’t want to hear about your weird ass incest fantasies, I don’t want to hear about how you’re going to “put a bitch in her place,” or your thoughts on someone else’s body (it’s not your own, therefore, you have no say).
The people I photograph, including myself, are PEOPLE. They are not objects for someone’s enjoyment. They are not isolated incidents occurring in time. They are flesh and blood with hopes and dreams and fears. Placing your text onto their likeness and projecting your fantasies onto someone else means you need to get the fuck out of your mom’s basement and out into the real world to interact with humans on a normal basis.
It is not okay and while I can’t control everyone and what they do, I sure as shit will call people out for being grossly out of line.
When I’m shooting, I generally try to avoid having people around me. Jacquie was the first exception to the rule, my sister Janet (who walked ahead of me) was the second person. Craig was my third. It was kind of strange, but it was nice having a look-out and having someone else excited about my shots. It makes me excited, though somewhat more serious, about what I’m creating that day.
As some of you may have seen in my recent post I’m havinga really serious issue.
I subleased my apartment and I was expecting to move into a friends house, but they rented it to someone else instead.
and someone has already signed a lease on my apartment so I have about a week to find somewhere…
