A Transfer of Energy
Oftentimes, I find inspiration from old photos. I don’t copy them, but rather transfer the energy. This particular photo has been the spark behind many of my night scenes. I imagine this man being deep in meditation. Perhaps it’s the day after a great bison hunt and he is feeling blessed?
