Wow. As an aside, she says she “just want(s) people to think about what these bullets can do.” As a responsible gun owner, I can assure her I do, and if that’s what it takes to protect my family, that’s what it takes.
This is what I hate about art. Or maybe just artists. And I’m speaking here as a fine art photographer. I don’t believe that an artist should tell you what message they want you to take away from their work. Every single person who looks at any single piece of art is going to take away from it something different. That’s how it should be. You can create a magnificent work and give it to the world and let the world take from it what it will. But as soon as you start telling the world what it’s *supposed* to see, how it’s *supposed* to feel, you’ve managed to destroy what might be THE most important aspect of your work. It shouldn’t matter to you what I take away from your work. It should only matter that I take away SOMETHING from your work. It can mean whatever you want it to mean to you, you can create it for whatever reason you want. Chances are someone, somewhere will have the reaction you want them to have. But art should NEVER be about the artist forcing the audience’s reaction. If I don’t agree with your message, it becomes nearly impossible for me to separate something that is breathtaking from something I wholeheartedly disagree with. And when that happens, you have failed.
I love this.

It is my Instagram, after all. You wouldn’t be following it if you thought it sucked. Unless you’re following it so that you can mock me. I suppose that’s possible. Damn. Now I’m afraid you might be mocking me. You’re mocking me, aren’t you? Jerkface.
I can’t get enough of that song.

That’s quite a paragraph.
