Moments By Samantha Billings

Artist Statement

Photographs have the capability to help humans see things that are often taken for granted because of the tempting invitations of distractions. I found that while others were distracted by their selective nuances I was able to capture their moment, with that being said I felt swallowed by that moment and I couldn’t stop seeing what I had taken for granted for so long. I have been blinded because of my fear of failing, and I have learned to let go of that fear and photograph for the sake of seeing these moments that are so captivating to me. This work has showed me that there is no point to fear failure, because it’s part of this process called life.
