I recently found an old folder that I used when taking a Photography class in NYU around 2005. During this time I had writers block and had quit music. For almost three years I done nothing creative and worked solely on getting rid of my debts and settling into my new NYC life. Frustration began to show due to my artless existence so Marisa pushed me into taking a photograph class at NYU. Each week we learned about the science and art of photography. Building our own cameras and experimenting with different techniques. I loved it, I’d been interested in photography since I was young but never pursued it as a career. It was too much fun.
In the folder I found some old photos I took during the class. I scanned them and posted them below.
The class got my creative juices flowing and the following year after much procrastinating I decided to try comedy. This then led to everything I do now including a return to music. I view those three years as a reset. I work even harder than I ever did before. Anyway, I’m not in the mood to write about “art” or “creativity” right now. Let’s just say I’m glad I took the class.
