Poetry or prose? What will Milena inspire today?

Poetry or prose? What will Milena inspire today?
It started out as a real question I was asking myself. I have been feeling very lazy lately, not writing any texts to go along with my photographs. To be perfectly honest, I find doing the photography, really, quite easy. I don't need to say this, but actually, quite pleasurable. Photographing my models as well as processing the images afterward – all pleasurable activities. Maybe it’s easy because it is pleasurable. Writing about the experience is the hard part. I have to step back and look into the scene as an observer, but all the time being aware of the emotions I am feeling, while photographing and working with my models so that I can write about them. The models and the feelings, that is.

It occurs to me that on a certain level all my models evoke similar emotions in me. I suppose it is because I am the one that casts them and therefore they meet my own aesthetic requirements and sensibilities. Kind of like having the opportunity to create your very own perfect woman from a catalogue. It is rare that a model that I meet will not appeal to me, although it has happened. I still was able to pull out some great shots from the session. As I said earlier, the photography part is easy for me.

But back to my question “Poetry or prose? What will Milena inspire today?” I guess it would just have to be considered as rhetorical. Beauty is always inspiring. So whether one writes words, composes music, paints or photographs, through inspiration, women like Milena have been responsible for much greater beauty on this earth than just their own.

Worth viewing the large version.
