SCREAM THAT HE
DESTROYS ALL KINDNESS IN YOU
AND BLACKENS EVERY VISION
YOU COULD HAVE SHOWN HIM.

HOW CONCISE THAT YOU CAN CRY FROM
AWFUL WOUNDS, DESERTION, HAPPINESS,
MEMORIES, HUMILIATION,
DISAPPOINTMENT OR GRANDEUR.

JUST ONE ROTTEN SPOT IN YOUR HEAD
CAN MAKE EVERY MOVEMENT PAINFUL.
YOU CAN’T ROLL YOUR EYES, BEND DOWN,
OR JUMP AND LAND WITH IMPUNITY.
EVEN THINKING HURTS.

I don’t want to always be pretty and smile in pictures. I don’t want to be perfect and put together and in control. I don’t want to put restrictions on what I do or who I am in my photographs. I don’t want to be who you want me to be. I haven’t wanted anyone to pay me for making something just for them. I’ve wanted people to enjoy what I have made for myself. I want to be unafraid. I don’t want to ever stop. If I am 80 years old and shuffling arthritic limbs out of quick jersey-knit shirts near open hotel windows at dusk with my camera pointed at me, I’ll know I have done everything that I had intended to do and possibly quite a bit more.

Artists lick their wounds for nourishment not for healing.
