A couple posts ago I wrote a very long caption detailing a recent creative block and how I overcame it. Even though I didn't prove it as of yet by showing you new work, that wasn't a lie. It just takes a while for these things to completely resolve.
I thought about how to use Instagram going forward for a long time and pretty often, too. Maybe more than I should have since I came to a conclusion that seems quite obvious: it doesn't actually matter. And that is precisely why from now on I will share whatever I like on here.
I remember the "good old days": my feed was clean, white and minimal. It's not that I don't like the aesthetic anymore but let's be honest: I kept it consistent because it worked. I never strayed far from what I then presumed to be my style. It was what people expected, so it brought the attention that I admittedly craved. Attention which enabled me a brief stint in the outskirts of a world I quickly realized was no place for me.
My whole thought process does not fit in a caption. For such purposes I will revive my blog next year. Just know that I arrived at the end of a strange internal journey and this is my way of saying: "Hey, I'm back for good!" Furthermore, these photos are actually a good indication of what's to come. Even though I didn't even take most of them as they show me. Thanks for this and all the other support goes to Sava ( @thisissava ), of course.
But yeah. It's gonna get dark, it will be more personal, it won't always show happy times, rather I'd like to incorporate issues that are important to me into my work and share all my experiments with you. Just bought a medium format camera, for instance. Maybe one day I'll even manage to focus properly with it, who knows?
So, wow, okay. That got very long once again. Anyway, it would mean a ton to me if you stayed with me during this new chapter. See you around! Regularly now.
