These are extracts from a recent email exchange with a friend of mine (who is actually a very well known photographer):
I hope your summer is going well. I’ve struck a nice balance of work and rest, though I feel a little confused about where my work is going right now. I’m hoping if I continue to work it through it will become clearer to me.
I LIVE in CONSTANT confusion of where my work is going. The trick for me is to strike a balance where self-forgiveness is concerned. Hard.
I frequently tell me students that we all work out of confusion. I suppose sometimes I need to be reminded of this myself.
