Into a different kind of view, not meant for human eyes,
Everything’s dark and fades away: this moment just opened my eyes.

The only excuse for making a useless thing is to admire it intensely.
All art is quite useless.

I was going to write this journal straightaway, but then I kind of lost track of time, so here we are.

Of course, I want to give a huge, huge thank you to the amazing queenkitty for featuring Solitaire VIII as a Daily Deviation!
Getting a DD is always a huge honour and I’ very thankful also to those who’ve given me feedback, on that particular work and others as well.

On a more personal level, getting a DD on a photo from the Solitaire series means a lot to me because of the circumstances around the shoot. It was born on the wake of Belial, which is the penultimate work on my Infernal Lords project, and for the longest time I felt incredibly nervous about going and doing it. On the one hand, the mere organisation was quite a lot ot pull off in terms of time, energy and money due to the physical distance between me and Antonio, the model; on the other I have a huge deal of respect for him and I found myself stuck, wondering if my work was actually good enough for him to put time and effort into it.
You see, I’ve had quite a few instances of people turning out not to take my work as seriously as I do – even people who know me too well not to know how much photography means to me – and that’s been eroding my already frail sense of self-worth. The very act of telling myself, “Alright, we’re doing this, no more delays, time to face it, let’s call everyone involved and pick a date” was an unbelievably cathartic and empowering moment. Also, just seeing how enthusiastic Antonio turned out to be about the whole shoot, how much he believed we could do something really nice of it, was very encouraging.

I’m proud of all the photos I took that afternoon, and also of how I overcame doubts and insecurities to get there. I rediscovered my inner strength to go things, deal with setbacks and keep on marching on my path. Most of this year has been about self-healing and this series is an integral of that project, so the DD recognition is yet another encouragement in that directions: I can really turn things around this time.

Thank you all for being part of this journey with your support! :heart:

Thank you for giving this slave a llama. A gift to a slave is an honour to its owner.

You really deserved the daily deviation - the amount of work you put into your photography shows very clearly for those who know to look :D
