me by christaan felber
i feel so absolutely lucky to be interning for christaan. not only is he an amazing photographer whose work i’ve looked up to and admired for quite some time now, but he’s honestly one of the best people i have had the privilege to meet.
just a couple weeks after starting working for him, i went through an old hard drive of mine. it was from late 2011/january 2012. i tend to keep folders on my desktop entitled “save” which are comprised of photos and other art that i like, photos of people i look up to etc etc. i was scrolling through the items saved in that old hard drive, and what did i come across? a photograph christaan took back in 2011 when he was touring with one of my favorite bands, the vaccines. i saved that photo in late january of 2012 into that folder and onto that hard drive. here we are two years later, and i’m interning for the guy.
i’ve had a lot (a LOT) of breakdowns and little moments where i freak out that i’m not where i want to be with my photography because i just love it so much that it becomes painful sometimes. that i have not achieved certain things just yet, or even times where i’m questioning what i’m doing in the first place. but then occurrences like this happen and it makes me feel a bit better, and it shows me how far i’ve gotten, even if i haven’t gotten that far just yet.
go take a look at christaan’s work, he’s pretty damn good at what he does.
my next zine will probably be entitled “white people” and will be comprised of found images.
