The DJ Set, Dreamworld, is the sound of something coming back alive in me.
I didn’t realize something in me had been dead because I didn’t feel depressed and I am happy.
Sure I’d all but stopped listening to music and had stopped writing but in the grand scheme of things I am happy.
I think the awakening from this deep sleep of spirit has come about because of my work as a photographer and because my aim is to create powerful images I’ve had to really connect with the people I photograph; these are young men and women who are trying to find their way in the world, to overcome some really serious issues, and just survive.
I think I’ve had to feel because I remember what it was like when faced with similar challenges. I reconnected with this sadness in me that feels now feels beautiful at the same time. I’m in my late 40s and I am still here and it’s something I remind the models who trust me enough to let me in and connect.
Life, it gets better.
I feel alive again and music now fills me with pleasure and I have so much desire to write.
It all feels like a dream now.
Hence the the DJ set.
Because I’m moody as fuck, the set reflects that, starting chill before blowing it all up in the middle.
Take a listen and enjoy. Now back to taking pictures.
