Photographers are like collectors, I believe they are the worst kind. They start small, but once they are really deep into it - they will say and do anything to have this precious thing, this one precious moment. They walk the mile, literally and not, they will chirp like birds and roar like lions just to get what they need, finally they will make a nice exhibition out of their collection. Really, the worst kind. They pip through a whole, most of em feel its a safer way to look at the world. Those who think they can help or inspire the world with that - are the worst kind, and I am one of them. I am this kind of a "dorobo", I am this kind of "hentai".
I tell you all this before I get camera out of my bag and start hum around you like bee over flower. Ofcourse it is all about me. I want to be honest with you, have no illusion about what we are doing, and I try too hard cause you smile and pretend like you never heard what I said.
I like the shutter sound camera makes - it compliments the music we play and scatters unnoticed. But when I am close to you, I want you to hear it enough - so that you feel how fast and how meticulous I am at dissecting your soul. You will be mine before you know it. But I enjoy resistance in the beginning. I know the viewer will feel your penetrating look, and they will doubt their own honesty. But I am honest to you, I dont promise you love, just an open heart through a finder, absence of judging, a whole in my heart with ISO 400 sensitivity that digests sin faster than light - darkness.
Finally... stripped from all the doubt and my desire to have you, you become like polished mirror. I aim mirror of my camera at you and wonder - when two mirrors stare at each other - what reflects one and the other?
