Your Story Matters

“It’s not just about the art – it’s about giving your soul a voice for freedom of expression.” – Desiree East

Life is about telling stories; whether they are told around a camp fire, at the dinner table, in a published novel or on the walls of a city skate park – they matter because they are unique, and powerfully so.


Conformity frightens me!


I cannot be like you because my experiences (and perceptions) are different. That does not mean that your story does not have the ability to affect me – and how amazing is it not when we affect one another, positively.


This post tells a story of two colleagues, teachers, who refuse to be only that. Our expression lies in our abilities to create. Meeting her was no accident and I am privileged to work with a photographer who is not only invested in the visions I have for my blog, but with someone who, creatively, inspires original content.


I love her work; her relaxed demeanour allows you to feel comfortable. When she shoots, it is all about you. Her photographs have that ‘thing’ to it and I suspect that it’s her friendly quirk that adds that touch of ‘real’ to each frame.


This shoot lived up to its expectations in that it amounted to art; her lens, my passion and the graffiti artist’s marks on the wall all represent the freeing of the soul and the freedom of expression.
