It was supposed to be a long-term project. I dreamed about it for long time. Portrait photography is one of the biggest challenges in photography. Photographers identity and relational dynamics between photographer and model are crucial. Portraits is the effect of an artistic and psychological work. Emotional load is more important than aesthetic value.
Why did I quit so fast? Why I wasn't more stubborn and more bitterly. These are necessary traits of artist who is looking for his models. Were problems with finding teenagers for photo shoots were the real reason? Ridiculous fears of parents, aversion to give any help, omnipresent distrust? I knew it won't be easy task. I live in the country with the lowest level of trust in society.
Maturation of an artist is also the ability to wait Maybe it wasn't my time yet. Maybe there was too much uncertainty and fear in my ideas.
This project will never be finished in its original form. Perhaps, in future there will be an evolution. Probably? I'm still dreaming about shooting people. For now in my work I'm telling about them by their absence.
