Such a beautiful and emotive capture by @ashleynjoncas, "Todesgeruch Fig. 03". What Ashley writes about this work really resonates with me: "There’s this state of complete numbness that hits me from time to time. I long to hide from the world but can’t escape from emails and people. I watch friends take vacations while I destroy myself for a dream in my head so vivid it burns through closed eyes. And at moments I question if it’s all worth it. Someone once told me that there’s a reason for a fight... that it’s derived from severe feelings, good and bad. And so I’ll often hit the residual concrete wall of numbness, tired from fighting for the things I want to achieve, the sleep I lack, the creative blocks, the empty friendships...and at those lifeless raw moments I transform. Every fear of failure and fatigue needs to be swallowed whole until it surfs the red waves of your bloodstream like a bat out of hell on a boogie board. The pain and discomfort shows your willingness to survive. Out of uncertainty you gain strength. Out of turmoil you create... both art and yourself."
Beyond fed up with this shit. Should of known when facebook acquired IG it would eventually turn into a shit show. I follow specific people for a reason, bc I'm interested in their content and their content alone. If I want to look up something specific then I'll hit the search bar, otherwise don't force feed me shit... Also the whole seeing a post from 3 days ago at the top of my feed is extremely annoying... They are also switching up the IG stories as well. Once these changes start rolling out I'm dipping out. Been getting in the groove of using @vsco I'm enjoying the platform so far and the community it has formed.
