The notion of the artistic muse has been in existence as long as the arts themselves, since the nine daughters of Zeus were born, the personification of knowledge and the arts themselves throughout Greek mythology. As artists, our muses speak to us and through us, they can embody our work as much as our work embodies them. As photographers, we rely on our science to arrest them in time, to remember, as if there is some part of them they offer up to us in this fraction of a second, a small part we know we’ll be able to keep. Perhaps we’re hyper aware that they are as temporal as we, and we continue to produce, and hold onto our images, knowing they may survive a little longer- a legacy of friendship, love, or even obsession.
