“You’ll make sure not to run into the same sort of situation with love in the future, right?” “I may miss out. Of course I can’t help it. I’m not as sure how to approach people now as I was before. However, now I’m going to take a bit more action.”
“그럼 앞으로는 그렇게 안타깝게 사랑을 놓치는 일이 없겠네요?” “놓칩니다. 당연히 놓치죠. 사람에게 다가가는 게 여전히 익숙하지 않네요. 그래도 이젠 조금 더 행동을 취하려고요.”
“I’m Ojibwe…A Two-Spirited person is considered gay in the Ojibwe tribe, or in the Dakota/Sioux tribe…The Great Spirit considers us to have two spirits, it’s been like that since the beginning of time, that you can actually be with another man, or a woman can be with another woman…The Ojibwe Tribal Nation, the elders consider that you were born this way. This is how the Great Spirit, the Creator made you. And that you are two spirits in one…You’re not knocked down for it, or anything like that. Sure, other members are going to say stuff under their breath. But when it comes to having our ceremonies, we go first at the Grand Entrance, which is the beginning of the powwow…Rather than being told that it’s an abomination, it’s very accepted. It’s more accepted, I think, than any other religion or any other race…We’re actually seen as being higher in the tribe, one step below an elder, which is pretty cool…”
Back in the swing of the city.
Finding the crumb of motivation, of creativity, is a constant unending search for me. I am always looking for a speck of reason. Why am I shooting?
I often find myself shooting the single lone figure in the urban environment.
Some people have told me many of my images feel lonely. I’ve decided to embrace that for a bit. I’m going to start to concentrate on the alone.
