Photography is an Act of Submission 

She is a demanding and sometimes cruel mistress. She requires that you surrender without thought of the damage that might be done. She tears apart your cherished beliefs. She shows you more than you are ready to see. She torments you when you’ve spent too much time away. She’s silent when others mock and savage you.  She’s unforgiving when you doubt. She’s unrelenting when you are discouraged.  She does not come to your rescue, or give any succour to your weakness. The only offering she accepts Is your all, your voice, the authentic expression only you have. 

Anything less is laid to waste.
