2007, The year I started to explore. I Brought my camera everywhere, made pictures with lenses that were covered in spots of dirt. I didn’t care if my lens was clean or not. The freedom I felt during those years as if a door opened and I was free to enter a world that was completely mine. I had no idea how to shoot RAW because I never read the manuals. I’m pig-headed when it comes to that. My younger brother had to co-operate too from time to time. He’ll pop up in one or two images.
Nevertheless, I found my way around and discovered every bit on my own, in my own time. Luckily I was able to explore during a time when social media had a low profile. I had DeviantArt and a Flickr page. Those were the days.
I am ever so thankful that I was able to explore in solitude and silence.
