Is my work thus far egoistic self-absorption or does it speak to others about an aspect of my experience in a legitimate way that engages interest and stimulates thought?
I’ve been looking at all the self published photobooks on blurb and they fall into many camps. One such camp seems to be taking photographs and producing books for their own sake – often with pretty images that do not speak to me about anything in particular.
I hope I am not blinded to the risk of being too self absorbed in my endeavours and that the body of work I am developing does not fall into that category. If it does then I will have wasted a lot of time and effort.
