While stitching yesterday I decided to watch the Gregory Crewdson documentary Brief Encounters (on netflix.) As a budding photographer I was in love with Crewdson's work and still have my heart skip a beat when I see a work in person.
When talking about being an artist and its challenge he says "it is to will something into existence that makes a difference to the greater world."
Words "quiet alienation"
describing documentary photography "poetic truth in the world"
-that every artist has one central story to tell, the challenge is finding new ways to tell it, to challenge the story... it is the story of who you are.
