I Was Told The Arts Were Only Meant To Be Hobbies

“Growing up, I always liked photography but didn’t consider it as a career option for a long time. I was told the arts were only meant to be hobbies. Fast forward to five years in a corporate job and feeling unhappy, a conversation with a friend helped me realize life is truly too short to spend it doing something you don’t believe in. I’ve always been interested in stories and I think photography is a form of storytelling. It’s a way of feeling, of remembering, of bearing witness. Life is finite. But when you press the shutter, that moment is captured, forever frozen in time. And by doing so we can create tiny infinities out of this finite life.” – @janiceyiphotography
