"Picture Perfect" (最佳摄影)
"Picture Perfect" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
I am tired. In the ideal world, people would not strive to reach the ideal outcome - instead they would settle for self-contempt and mediocre satisfaction, verging on “Fair Enough”. Imagine the rich man who does not want more money or the poor man who does not want what they don't have. Criminals would do nothing to achieve perfection in matters of crime. However we do not live in such a reality and I (as many other people, sane and insane) am lost to the pressures of my own ambitions and dreams. As my profession requires I aim for the best, which in my case would be a Pulitzer Prize. I do not know which one is required more. The luck - being at the right time and place, with camera permanently fixed to your hand - or just the skill. Perhaps both of them. But f*** the ideal world and f*** the prizes. If I had to award myself for anything it would be the patience of being an artist and my favourite picture. (see above)
