I took this photo in Shoreditch, London last week. Graffiti and the artists that create it represent part of the feeling and culture of many cities around the world. However, this tunnel made me feel that the layers of paint also obscure what is beneath. They obscure the original essence of the place. We always have a choice to look at the surface or try to see things as they are, rather than dressing them up, covering them up, or exaggerating things. Let’s be curious and explore what’s underneath. And look at it objectively.
There is so much happening in the world, and everyone seems to feel entitled to an opinion. The saddest thing is when people get so connected to their ‘side’ or their ‘layer’ of seeing things, that they stop being objective and stop considering the thoughts, feelings, truths and perspectives of the ‘other layers’.
In this inspiration shot I would like to touch on a couple of these layers and try to uncover some naked (un)truths. I’d love to hear your reactions in an email or on social media.
