A Reality Of My Own

"A Nirvana where there is no more personality and hence no conflict. It is the expression of a man's wish to triumph over reality, over becoming. The artist's dream of the impossible, the miraculous, is simply the resultant of his inability to adapt himself to reality. He creates, therefore, a reality of his own. It is not that he is incapable of living. On the contrary, his zest for his life is so powerful, so voracious that it forces him to kill himself over and over. He dies many times in order to live innumerable lives."

-Henry Miller

This is a quote I came across this past weekend as I was killing time in Wynwood before the first ever showcase of my work in collaboration with painter Brian Buzzella at GAB gallery for Art Walk. It was quite the experience and I am so glad I was given the opportunity and had so many friends come out to support me but getting back to the point of the quote above....there's something about the emotional turmoil within it that makes it up-lifiting and inspiring. I've been slacking on the blog recently when it comes to personal content posts so since I got such a great response from my Lately post I thought I would do another one similar to that just showing you all what I've been up to the past few weeks. Stay tuned for some really interesting content featuring interviews with artists and style icons later this week.

Update: Just had an outtake from a photo shoot I recently collaborated on with Orestes de la Paz accepted by Photo Vogue and thought I would share here. 
I can't wait to show you all the photo's that did make the cut!
