When I get started in photography I used to be addicted to social media and used to follow which type of photos could have many likes and, the worst of all, I let likes judge my photos, I became a slave to social media.
I used to follow the style of other photographers and photograph what they photograph .
I used to be like all the masses of photographers on social media and shot like everybody else. I shot for others.
But I’m not like others, I’m a unique individual with different life experiences, different from everybody else. Everybody are different, fuck who says that we -as human beings- are all equal.
Why follow what others are photographing that may not be true to myself?
In photography I try to not photograph how other people are photographing and try to be myself, only in this way I can truly express myself in my photographs.
