I am currently preparing for a rather large show, and have just done some preparations for two other ones. As a musican, I am fully aware of the notion of having a repertoire....a group of pieces I can be fully prepared to play with very little notice, but they are the compositions of others. I make my best efforts at bringing them to life, but my mission is to reveal the expression of the composer as filtered through my lens, but I don't have to adjudicate the value of the work....it's established. My photographs, however, are subject to a much more emotional crucible. When I make them, I either really, really like them....or I really, really don't, and they're "outta here". BUT...and the point of this thread...is that my feelings about my most favored work can vary considerably, and can sometimes be extremely negative which amazes me since it was "not so long ago" that I thought AA and EW should offer me a high five for it. Am I alone in this regard? Do ya'll experience a similar swing?
