Today morning, I was listening podcast from LensWork entitled Mannequins and Abandoned Places. If you do any, a bit more serious photography then your summer holiday, you should certainly listen to it. Somewhere in the second half of it, I started to realize what is the answer to my own question. The question I posted in the comment to my earlier letter to you.
I was asking: “Why I do care if other people express what they think about my photography”.
As I listened more and more to the podcast, I realize that not only my photography and this blog is influenced by it. It seems as most of my life is. Many things started to fall into the place.
In any case, I feel it now, as the important discovery about myself.
I believe that reason why, I do care if other people express what they think about my photography, is because I want to connect with them.
There is more
As I was thinking more about it, I also realized, that for the same reason, I love to teach. Teaching is a perfect way to connect with people! There is more, what I do, what I choose, which this reasons perfectly explains. Connecting with people seems as the driving force for my recent life.
I am not going to write more about this. Not going to search for reasons why this “connecting with people” is so important to me. Why, do I write these letters to you, my anonymous friend. I am glad I have discovered this. It explains a lot about my behaviour and my unconscious choices.
