"admire me, admire my home
admire my son, he's my clone"
"I do not dare deny
the basic beast inside
it's right here, it's controlling my mind"
going back a few years, I adamantly believed photography - art in general, for that matter - shouldn't be political. I had some reservations when applying the logic to music, writing, or movies, because of the existence of words, though.
in my head, it had to be all about words, logic, reason... and while most of the times I did a shitty job upholding any of that, I did theorize it to be better, more effective.
that has obviously been engrained in my personality as the way I usually communicate. I tend to overexplain things as if some things weren't clear already.
my love for photography was only truly able to blossom when I came to know that it could - and more importantly, it definitely should - have a message, be it political or not.
and one of the things I feel like photography may be best equipped to deal with is this whole gentrification bullshit. so, here's the photo that first made me have second thoughts about the role of photography.
anyways, this is "no vacancies, so many reservations (2018)".
once again, thank you for all the support. 🙏🙏🙏
