Quotes

“…I’m here to tell you making money off your pictures is not a good reason to be here.
Neither is fame, nor acclaim.
All three goals are elusive, unlikely, and fleeting. Rather, art practice is about self-improvement and self-expression.
And those things are priceless.
” — Jonathan Blaustein

“If people are doubting how far you can go, go so far that you can’t hear them anymore.” — Michele Ruiz

“There’s no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” — Maya Angelou
