interview, it’s essential
to mention that he was
just george, beneath the
artist, the photograher,
the thinker, he was still
him, through it all.
Below is his response -
“... It’s hard to say. Let me think for a second. More than anything, especially
before covid, I was already in survival mode. I had just finished school this time
last year, I didn’t have a safety net. Being out of school I had to kind of figure
out things out as soon as the pandemic hit and that’s when I was like oh man...
I don’t know what I’m doing, I kind of feel alone. I think if anything that just
let me gravitate more towards my friends and family more than I already did and
I guess it’s kind of like, all right, us first, then the world. Were just trying
to survive day by day by day. I try not to think about 2021 or 2022, as long
as I can survive each day, each week, each month, that’s a moral victory. I had
a confidence in my job, in my work, especially during covid because thankfully I
was always getting tested, so I didn’t have the fear of putting someone at risk
I dont know what’s next, my mind is always constantly thinking. If I continue to
make the work I’m proud of and it resonates with people, then I’m doing something
right, even if it’s for other people and not myself. Like I said before, I’m
really taking things as they come.
