Perceptive Photographer Episode 4: Importance of working early on artist statements

In this episode of the Perceptive Photographer we look at how the artist statement or writing down what your work is about can be a powerful tool in helping you create more meaningful work. I found that in my own workflow, I used to wait until the last possible second to create an artist statement. Those statements where more drivel and pontification about meaningless aspects of my work. By shifting the writing about my work to the beginning of the process, I was able to find vocabulary and meaning in my work. As I got better about talking about my work, my work got better behind the camera.
