One Hour Photos

I love photography. There’s something magic about a photograph. You know capturing a moment and then being able to hold it in your hand, it really shouldn’t be possible. I mean it’s a tangible memory; the concept is almost futuristic, sci-fi.

There was a time when I was convinced that I was going to be a photographer, as I was obsessed with French Vogue and Larry Clark. I would take pictures of everything and anybody, good times, bad times, friends and strangers, which only resulted in me clogging up my hard drive with thousands of digital photos.

In my room I can’t even see my wallpaper any more as my walls are simply covered with photos of all the people I love or have ever loved. I put them up there so I can see them every day and can relive past moments over and over. Also it cheers me up sometimes, when I forget who I am and they remind me that I was happy once and so will be again...I love photos, they’re awesome!!
