A Jester Death
I’ve been feeling really out of touch with my art lately. It seems to be lacking a certain quality and it’s affected my enthusiasm quite drastically. I’m two laughs from a tear all the time and this pale yet colourful concept is intended to exploit my attitude towards picking up the camera again. I have interpreted my usual photographic self-expression through the persona and stereotype of a humourless comic, a depressed clown or a jester awaiting his death. I have thrown so much work away in the past and sometimes I doubt myself so harshly that I don’t feel I can come back after a bad shoot. I would rather fight to the death to make my images the best that they can possibly be, than devote my time to some other teenage social construction, and when my concepts don’t come together it can be really difficult for me.
