A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.

 

 “Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.” – Peter Adams

 

A place called Deolate

I did not attend my daughter's third birthday. I was in the middle of a divorce process, and I couldn't bear showing up at her party (hosted by her mother's father), putting on a fake smile, when my heart is shredded apart. 

 

I never expected to miss one of my daughter's birthday, but on this day, I was sad. Very sad. I explained to the model that I was feeling down and told her why. A photo shoot was the distraction I needed to get through the day. 

 

The result displayed an accurate reflection of how I was feeling that day.
