Accept that your work is more about you than what you represent, try to bridge that balance, without resorting to photographing your feet! In other words, try and translate personal experience into a collective one; it is very possible and I think the key quest of any art form…

Donovan Wylie’s advice towards young photographers. This reminds me a lot about an article I read regarding travel writers, where a major publication said that the majority of its writers are generally occupied with a lot of other stuff in their lives as well. They may be covering life in Mongolia or may be writing for their own site while traveling on their own account. Whatever it is, they’re not just doing one thing. They’re involved and are curious about other things and that in return produces material for them to write about.

Very much like photography, the key element to good writing or photographs is genuine experience. The more you know the more your images will show.
