and sorrow's native son, he will not smile for anyone, and pretty girls make graves
two photographic happenings occurred yesterday. i went to the world press photo exhibition which is currently in la paz, and i went for a meeting with an editor about publishing some of my pictures in his magazine. whilst i'm not expecting either of those events to occur again any time soon - i've made a mental note to never combine those activities together. whilst the exhibition was moving, impressive and inspiring - showcasing award winning photojournalism from the last year - i also left feeling deflated. the quality was so much higher than my work that it filled me with self doubt and insecurity. not the frame of mind you want to be in when you're about to convince an editor to print your photos. i knew that it was an illogical reaction - of course the exhibited photos were superior - they were taken by professionals. award winning professionals at that. but rationality couldn't permeate my confidence. regardless i think the meeting went well so i'll keep you posted on any developments. in the mean time - check out the world press photo website - one of my favourites was the mexican car racing series.
