April Artist of the Month at SRC.
Before recovery, creativity always felt vulnerable, like I was doing something that wasn’t allowed. When I shot photos, I felt free and I thought I didn’t deserve it. I felt guilty.
In recovery I have learned that creativity is essential to my well-being. When I shoot photos I tell the voices in my head to shush. The time I spend shooting and editing photos is delicious. I feel like a little kid with finger paints. I am always directed to just the right place at just the right time to shoot photos I love.
Today, I need creativity like I need air.
These photos were taken during a road trip to New Mexico. I was inspired by the landscapes. I felt present.
