The second half of 2017 became a nightmare of an artistic block for me photographically. A couple of disastrous shoots (which maybe I’ll talk about sometime) and some difficult times personally meant I ended up not writing about, and barely actually doing any, photography for nearly six months!
But, it’s a new year so a new beginning of sorts. Sometimes it helps not to overthink these things but just to get out there and shoot. After all as Henri Cartier-Bresson said*:
“For me it’s a physical pleasure photography, it doesn’t take much brains, it doesn’t take any brains, it takes sensitivity, a finger and two legs.”
So here are just a few, favourite recent images which hopefully are a harbinger of better (photographic) times to come.
Happy New Year.
