This photo is about creativity, manifesting in urban decay in Paris, on the famed Jim Morrison wall.
It’s a funny thing, creativity. Some studies have found that some of the world’s most prolific and creative people, such as Virginia Woolf or Ernest Hemingway, suffered from major psychiatric ailments, and it seems to be a pretty widespread belief that many of the most famous artists have often experienced some form of major life struggle or pain. The key, of course, is finding a way to harnass that internal pain and make it into some form of beauty, some creative expression.
I find myself that my own photographic work waxes and wanes, usually with my mood, and I do my best work when I am able to relate in some meaningful way to the story in front of me.
This is my version of the theme Close, as part of the weekly photo challenge that can be found here.
