Soul of Creativity

Soul of Creativity, originally uploaded by jkorpi.

Years ago I made this same photograph, only then it was an old guy in New Hampshire with a push lawn mower in front of his picturesque home. Just put together an old guy, a strange method to mowing ones lawn in front of a pleasant background. It’s a formula, follow it and you’ve got a “feature photograph.” When I realized I had made a nearly duplicate image only a few years ago I felt a sense of failure as a creative person. It was like writing the screenplay to a Hollywood movie only to come out with the sequel a few years later; same characters, same plot, diffent year.
