Don't hurt yourself to make emotional work.

Day 354 of 365

I’ve made my living and all my work on self deprecating behavior.
That in itself has a premature peak.
In football I hit too hard because I came from a dark place. 

In photography I made work because I was lonely.
The more I made the lonelier I got. 

In relationships I sabotaged the belief others had in me because I didn’t believe in myself. 

Those things get quick reactions, quick results, but they burn you out fast.
A marathon is the only way to run.
It’s changing me now.
The belief in myself has made me return to photographing faces.
Light is still a friendly site but it’s much better when it crosses your skin.
Only from a place of love not lack.
