Being in isolation is often where I find my creative spark. I can retreat to this space wherever I am. All I need to do is slip on a pair of headphones to get myself into that space. I could be surrounded by thousands of people but feel detached, observing the world around me, ready for the moment I press that shutter button.
So if you see me and I appear distant, it could be that I’m in that creative space and just observing, not scrutinizing the world around me. Not watching for detail but looking for patterns, looking for angles, looking for a frame.If you haven’t tried it, it can almost be like self hypnosis or a form of meditation, a way to switch off most of your mind and concentrate on just one thing.
