Have you seen the movie ‘Amadeus’?
Watch it, and pay special attention to Antonio Salieri. Accomplished in his own right, he pales in comparison to Wolfgang Amadeus, and he is painfully aware of that which separates them.
I feel that way often when I look at “R i c e b o y”‘s work. The sunlight in this picture could have easily destroyed the mood by being too strong. I can almost smell the grass, let alone imagine myself laying down in it. A good photo to me is one that makes you feel, or remember, or want something.
He has shown he has the ability to do this. I admire his stuff, but not to the point where I’ll try to indirectly kill him 😉 Sorry Salieri. If anything it is a motivator that pushes me to experiment with new things.
What things or people do you see that motivate you?
