1980s Trippy Stuff
It's difficult for me to look back into the primordial 1980s and imagine just what was going on in my mind. I have my own ideas and narratives, basically I think I was just lost in major teen angst and nihilism. I didn't go to college out of high school but my dad bought me a photography correspondance course. I eventually became fairly experimental with my Canon AE-1 and liked to mess around with blacklights and paint.
For those two years between high school and college I tried to be "creative" but I really knew nothing about art or the world or the art world. I'm pretty sure I really thought that people who put their photographs on walls knew something I didn't.
