The photography course at SACAC has altered my way of seeing and understanding of photography. I have learned that a good photograph is not always a pretty photograph. I have also learned how to use photography as a tool to address problems and issues not only in society but also how to address them within ourselves. I am more observant to every day mundane things and at the cost of sounding cliched, I?ll add that I try to find beauty in the most unlikely places. The basic definition of beauty and darkness has changed for me and now everything for me exists in shades of grey. I have also understood that while on a project, it?s not only ?what? it is that you create, the more important question to address is ?why? do you want to create. Photography has given me a sense of purpose and taught me how important it is to keep creating work.
