"How will this affect your photography?" Is a question posed by the psychotherapist I've been seeing for the last 3 years for depression. She got me to focus on going back to photography after a burn out after 30+ years in IT.
Now we've been looking at how the terminal cancer of my wife is going to affect my life and since photography is the center of it (we have no children or family). How will it affect my photography? Change of content, style, themes. Do I photograph her dying like Annie Leibovitz did Susan Sontag and her father? Do I not capture it and hold the images only in my heart? Will I turn more outward or inward in my work in the future?
I'm having to ask myself these questions which drive to the very root of love and the creative.
Have any of you here ever dealt with this and your creative life?
