Je publie ce texte pour le relire à l'occasion, il est de COLE THOMPSON, photographe à découvrir.
"I will think of myself as an artist, not as a photographer.
I will develop my own vision, not copy the vision of others.
I will work on seeing with my vision and not with my eyes.
I will avoid studying the work of other photographers.
I will not let the opinions of others affect how I feel about my work, for good or for bad.
I will focus on the creative process, not equipment or the technical processes.
I will shoot more often, every day if possible.
I will always stop when I see something that interests me, even if that means I’ll be late.
I will try something new and different.
I will not try to define what art is, or what it is not.
I will always encourage others in their creative process and I will appreciate those who encourage me.
I will associate with positive people.
I will get on the road and finish my Harbinger series.
I will start several new projects that excite me.
If I’m working on a project that does not excite me, I will abandon it.
When I find myself in a slump, I will not worry about it but patiently keep working and have faith that it will pass.
I will not compromise my values.
I will believe in myself, and that I can do anything I set my mind to.
I will love what I’m doing."
