Creative Collision: Icons of Inspiration

Question: Who or what inspires you?

“And if a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it’s as though I’ve neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up. I know that the accident of my being a photographer has made my life possible,” – Richard Avedon.

One of the few things that connects us all is that we ALL have sources of inspiration. Whether it’s a person you look up to, a group you follow, a theory you believe in, your favorite band…whatever it is, IT is something.
