Fear no more by Margaret Lansink

For as long as I can remember I had this feeling of being out of place. My presence didn’t truly matter. So I tried to be as cheerful and happy as I could be. Coloring my life for the outside world to over-compensate for my true inner feelings. Until ten years ago, when my physics surrendered and forced me into a confrontation with myself.

In “fear no more”, I have put aside my old habits. I have faced my deepest emotions. Picture by picture I broke down the fences of my fears. I dared to accept life and love. Photography became an essential necessity; via my images discovering who I really am.

Although the origin is personal, I strongly believe that there’s a universal element to it as in today’s society we all try to paint pretty pictures and thereby drift further and further away from our true selves.

Day after day I’m more confused
Yet I look for the light in the pouring rain
You know that’s a game that I hate to lose
I’m feelin’ the strain, ain’t it a shame
Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away

(Give me the beat boys – Doobie Brothers)
