Same hill, different day – Paul Octavious : “For the past 2 years I have visited a beautiful mound of earth that I have come to call “the hill.” Each time I have come to the hill a new story is told to me as if the hill is my stage and the locals are the actors in this daily play.” -paul
Sirens – Liz Lantz : “Sirens grew from a desire to understand a culture that I desperately wanted to be a part of as a land-locked surfer, riding the waves of Lake Michigan. When I moved to San Diego, it was both exciting and intimidating to see beaches full of people who shared my love for surfing. Popular surf media painted a picture of male-dominated world and I was surprised to see many other women in the water. In response to my own surf experiences, I set out to learn about these women and a side of surfing that is rarely exposed.” -liz
I have been feeling very pulled lately – pulled to dig deeper into what I am passionate about. Pulled to drop everything, pick up some cameras, and just….GO. Shoot for me, selfishly and seriously. Figure out what exactly it is I want my point of view to say. What do I see that no one else does? I have been pondering a lot on what I would want to focus on, what I would want to dig into.
Today I was introduced to these two photographers via blog surfing and they have just fanned the flames of my desire. Both projects appeal to me on a personal level very much, and I wanted to share them with you.
