The Image That Is Currently In The Forefront Of My Mind

I suffer from depression so this image really speaks to me. I’ve suffer from depression most of my life and never knew it. It’s reincarnated itself from childhood through to adulthood. Not the kind of person you want to take on a trip with , but it’s here for the ride. Watch a gonna do. Eliza Badoiu (@elizabadoiu).

Artwork That Has Influenced My Art

Roger Guetta a.k.a draman (@draman) is one of my favorite artists. He has influenced my thinking in how to incorporate different elements within an image, lines, color and text. He takes all these elements and creates something from nothing. Roger has shown me the possibilities of what mobile photography can be and for that I’m grateful.

The Image I Would Most Like To Give As A Gift

I pretty much like everything Sara (@tune_omatic) creates. In short, I love her imagination and creativity. I love the way she blends elements together to create a complete picture.
