usually i turn to the www for inspiration, pinterest for collecting it, and blogger for sharing. occasionally i need to hold art in my hands and visually devour the tangible work. enter magazines. i'm not really a fan of fashion magazines, they are self esteem demolishers, like wrecking balls on a house on fire. it's sad, really, what with all the glorified
anyway, aside from not being a fan of the content, there is a lot of amazing photography and inspiration in the pages, you just have to look really hard. sometimes i need a magazine to flip through because where there is inspiration, it's so much better than a digital image.
nowadays people want fast, digital, and the freedom to print crap quality pictures from walmart (this destroys the artistic intention by the way- you get what you pay for). i've tried multiple times to sell my images in print, but it hasn't worked out- i've submitted to convenience, but eventually i want to go back to the feel of a real photographs and insist on prints that are true to my art.
off the soapbox and back to inspiration, this morning i enjoyed my coffee while flipping through a magazine to pull images to collage with. i have collages all over my walls, the inspiration surrounds me and compels me to create and be true to my passions.
