In any case, I still like to keep the dust off my camera and so I've just been shooting randomly as I go about my life. I feel ashamed sometimes that I'm just haphazardly making work but maybe it's not that haphazard after all, and these pictures can be organized to make sense in some way. Definitely for myself, and maybe even for others to enjoy. I have about 30-40 images right now to go through that I've scanned, and 10 rolls of film left to go, and all of the images I select stir up some kind of memory and emotion for me. Maybe I can make sense of this in a way that can speak beyond my own experience...and if I can't I know I just need to keep on shooting and the inspiration will come back.
What do you do when you feel uninspired? Do you just ride it out until it strikes or try to force yourself to get inspired? I'd be interested to hear if other artists go through this and how you deal. I have felt this way for over a year! I never thought it would last this long.
