As always, Eudora Welty cuts right to the chase. I found this for the first time today and it just explains making photo’s for me that is so true, but I could never explain as eloquently:
“Long before I wrote stories, I listened for stories. Listening for them is something more acute than listening to them. I suppose it’s an early form of participation in what goes on. Listening children know stories are there. When their elders sit and begin, children are just waiting and hoping for one to come out, like a mouse from its hole.”
― Eudora Welty, One Writer’s Beginnings
How about you? I’d love to hear the how and why of your art. I’m sure others would too. Please feel free to comment and/or share the inspirations that drive you and your art…..
