I’ve been lucky enough to get the occasional message from younger photographers that admire some of my work, and I have to say that it is not only flattering but very inspiring. Every time one of these comes in I always get more motivated to push my work, and to try even harder to give back to younger photographers. Let’s face it the photography and art world in general is not always the easiest to be in. So it’s great to hear from others, especially younger people about your work.
So to any or all of you younger artists out there, I’m sure I can speak on behalf of most of us when I say… Thank you for inspiring us just as much as we might inspire you. Keep pushing your art, and continue sending messages to those that motivate you to be better. It doesn’t go un-noticed and often these messages come when we need that little reminder the most.
