It's really easy as a creative to get caught up in all our perceived faults, failures, and worries for the future. So much of what we create is tied to who we are, and what we feel. This connection is one of the many reasons great images move us, and great stories transfix us.
Every once in a while, we experience moments that make us grateful to be chasing our dreams, that our vision is being seen, and that most importantly it's being appreciated. I was extraordinarily grateful to read that Toronto blogger Candice Kaye of iCandi had some really nice things to say about my work. Candice and I first bonded over my graduate school thesis, a time in which I spent three months documenting daily life in Morocco. As fellow photography enthusiasts, it's invaluable to have an outside source to bounce ideas and inspirations with.
It's always humbling when your work is given praise, and I couldn't be more appreciative for Candice sharing my work and celebrating the launch of Seventh Step Studio with her readers. Navigating our creative fields can feel isolating at times, and its nice to be reminded that we aren't alone, but apart of a larger community of artists & creatives.
