I can’t watch my model friends go live on instagram or tiktok because i get too disgusted by their followers’ comments.

interminable waiting.

maintain a void.

Toronto. October 12th, 2017.
Keep your voids the same. Don't let them change. Imagine what more they could take from you if they were even a little different.

water your voids.

Toronto. April 22nd, 2017.
Encourage void growth. Water your voids. What does five years mean? Ask the void.

that feel when I spend 15 minutes messing with the colour tones on an image to get them just right, and then go back up a level to compare, and it looks *exactly the same*.

At which point, I will spend the rest of my life trying to recognize when that's happened, and then to do it again as many times as I can.

There was once a time when i had "ideas" for photography - concepts and goofy things with sets and costumes. I love seeing that when it's done well, but I think I kind of grew out of it, for both budget reasons and because I got sick of contrivances and pretense. I just want to express a very specific vibe in a very specific way, as directly as possible, and everything I do is practice until I manage to express it perfectly.

why can't I stop cropping everything in 4x5? Why is this happening to me?

when waiting for the AI to finish processing is the most time-consuming part of photo-processing...

I sometimes wonder if a photographer really loves the under-exposed look, or if their monitor is just uncalibrated...

at war.

When I shot this, my entire apartment was in shambles because I thought I had bed bugs. Turned out I had hives.

Toronto. September 29th, 2016.
In the long long ago, I worked with people who made me feel excited about my own work.
