Conceptual Spotlight #1

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 18, 2014, 12:44 PM
I am honored to present to all of you the first conceptual photographer for this spotlight.
Our first feature is: Sturmideenkind 

Dreamwalker III by Sturmideenkind   Hiding Place by Sturmideenkind  wishes and decisions by Sturmideenkind

Her work is incredible. Each photograph she takes is very well thought out; every detail and all the colours. Her work will blow your mind as you enter a dimension of deeper meaning and a whole new world that she creates herself with her own characters. Congratulations!

I will be doing my own Conceptual DDs (spotlight)

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 18, 2014, 12:33 PM
Hey guys!

So it seems like deviantart does not give two shits about conceptual photography (since people who produce conceptual photographs can no longer get a DD because there is no conceptual volunteer).
This makes me deeply pissed off, that every other type of art can get a DD while conceptual art sits in piles of dust in this community. Conceptual art takes a lot of work, brain power and skill. So since DA will not make me a volunteer after I filled out the application form many times, I will take matters in to my own hands and do my own conceptual spotlight, featuring the brilliant conceptual artists in this community who DESERVE it. Please stay tuned for I will be making the feature as soon as I can.

Mature Content Filter is On
(Contains: strong language)
I wake up every morning
troubled and mundane
questioning my existence
and assume I'm going insane

Six cups of coffee later
I'm still tired and filled with dread
Arrive to work with a fake smile
and suicide running through my head

Invisible to pretty much everyone
I never know what to say
Scared to tell the truth
of what I go through each day

I try to live my day like normal
with patience and charm
no one knows what is hidden
on the bottom of my left arm

People always tell me
“it is all in your mind”
I will make sure I write that on my suicide note
dated and signed

Some people call me selfish
“there are people who have it worse”
You think that makes me feel better?
Do you think I chose this curse?

“go out and do something”
I would rather be laying in bed
instead of trying to have fun
while wanting to be dead

You think we make this up?
We are barely even alive
we do not have confidence
we are fucking sick of trying to survive

We have no energy
we have no fucking pride
You think what we go through is a joke?
You think we enjoy the ride?

I would rather wake up
in the depths of god damn Hell
then to wake up in my own bed
still trapped in this depressive shell
This Depression
I have not written in a while... but I am having a very bad day where my depression and anxiety is very bad. I wanted to express it with words this time, instead of with pictures. I just need to let it all out )=

Why I do not care about becoming 'famous'

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 15, 2014, 10:04 AM
        Many people tell me, "wow you are so talented, your pictures are so good... but I do not understand why you do not have the exposure you deserve." I get this a lot, and I never know what to tell them because I have so many reasons why it doesn't bug me. Many artists out there are very underexposed and I try my best to help them the best I can to get more exposure. There is nothing wrong with getting a lot of exposure, but I couldn't care less if I do not get a DD or get published in magazines every month.

        I have been published and it is great, and I appreciate all the watches and comments I get. I love my fans deeply, I love my fans more than I care about getting famous.  I do not want art to be my full dedication, and I do not want it to become a job. I feel that if I allow it to become my job, I will become blinded by fame and money because that is what fame and money does to people. I do not want to create art for the money, I want to create art because I love making it, and I love sharing it with my fans and help them become inspired. I have refused many publications quite a lot, this is because many magazines do not want any of the pictures they are publishing posted anywhere until they tell me that I can post them. I refuse to be controlled by this society, particularly by publishers who do not even pay or credit you once you get published. I would rather post my work right away and share it with the people that matter to me; and my fans DO matter to me and have a place in my heart always. 

        I know how underground I am, and it is most likely because of the style of art I produce, but I will never change just so I can get more exposure by posting cliche work that has nothing to do with how I am feeling. Art to me is simply about creation, relating to others and expressing yourself.; creating something meaningful and not just creating art in spite of getting exposure. It is about growing, learning, making mistakes and taking the high road and not follow the herd of sheep. If I ever do become famous, it will be out of my own control if someday I post something that gives me lots of exposure; I will still dedicate my work to my fans and would most likely use the money to help other artists that are underground like setting up art galleries everywhere dedicated to underground artists. 

        Having a lot of exposure doesn't matter. It doesn't matter how many fans your have; you will always have that special talent of creating meaningful art and no one can take that away from you. Not having a lot of exposure doesn't mean that you suck. It doesn't mean that you are not good and that your art is super bad, it just means it is not your time yet and it might never be your time. What matter is if you love doing it, you have to love it in order to keep pushing yourself and to keep creating art despite the challenges a head. You have to create your own motivation; and my motivation is I have people to inspire and I get to inspire others by doing what I love the most.
