I give myself to others every day. And given very little in return, I throw my shrugged by regret, dim hope and wishful thinking soul and mind to this pit of most uninspiring photography. My body crumbles under the weight of the sins committed against my true self. My limbs hurt from a constant chase for retribution. But I do it anyway, because it is what it is and I need to live somehow. I have wished and wished upon that northern star to guide me to a better place than this. Somewhere where my dreams come true and where hard work means creativity. Where your own vision matters and is rewarded in kindness, recognition and perhaps payment on time. A place far away from Kodak moments and another rich, old bitch, trying to outrun mother nature with the help of retouch and expensive red lipstick. If I could photograph my dream future, the picture would show an old camera. [Weronika Nossowicz]
