|circling around creativity|
This is my photo-heart connection of this month. I love taking photographs, this is a belated love which constantly oscillates between my fondness for everyday themes and random photos from inside my home and my need to explore the outdoors world (in particular, nature) and even myself
This photo illustrates this swinging love: old books and shells coexist peacefully in my house and surround me, proving not only my tastes, but the way I like to live. It manages to portray my mood and feelings. And it has also an extra ingredient: it shows an incipient liking for still-lifes that involve a more studied composition
I´ve been done this for a some time now, but lately I have started to feel more confident while I am creating compositions that are more deliberate and consciously done, where I arrange items, I look for certain light and mood and I play freely with symmetry, proportion, balance, harmony and so on...
My love for photography has allowed me to portray my life in a way that I wouldn´t have ever imagined. Photos are complementary to my writings and allow me to go through my feelings and thoughts, indeed they enhance each other. But this new phase in this process of development is allowing me to connect with a dimension of photography that I haven´t investigate in detail before which is much more related to artistic creation itself
I have the feeling that this close a sort of circle... because now I can not only depict the world as it is (or as I see it), but I am also aware of my capacity to recreate a new world of my own
