Ansel Adams on Art & Life

You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.

– Ansel Adams

To Paraphrase:

You don’t make art with just
8″x10″ / 5″x4″ / old polaroid cameras
acrylics / oils
canvas / wall
12u x 104hp modular synthesizers
Ableton Live
Pure Data
Lowden guitars

You bring to the act of creation your biography, all the things you love, all the things you detest, your gifts and your shadows.


Do this.

Do cool shit every damn day or die trying.

– Tom Peters
