that's the point

From the compelling photo essay, Blurry is Beautiful, by Yan Palmer

“Can we still be beautiful if we are unclear, not one thing or the other, but maybe both/and? A blurry photo communicates feeling in a language that perfection never will.”

“I wanted that pat on the head and validation so bad. Then, when I realized no one was going to give me a trophy for being a creative, I was liberated to write my own permission slip. Most of us think we'll never "arrive." We look for success in a finish line that keeps moving further away with every step forward we take. This line isn’t just an illusion for artists. It moves for mothers. For fathers. For the children who grow up and find out that the day they thought they’d have life figured out never comes. Still, there’s beauty to be found in the moving.”
